Terrence Higgins Trust announces new CEO
Wednesday 06 January 2016
Terrence Higgins Trust is delighted to announce the appointment of Ian Green as the charity’s new Chief Executive.
Ian has more than 25 years experience of high profile leadership roles in the voluntary, health, local government, housing, and social care sectors, in both executive and non-executive roles. Involved in YMCA for over 25 years, including as Chief Executive of YMCA England, he is currently on the executive staff team of The World Alliance of YMCAs located in Geneva.
Speaking about his new appointment, Ian Green said:
“I am really excited to be joining Terrence Higgins Trust. I have long admired the wonderful work of the charity, and I am honoured to accept the post of Chief Executive.
“I look forward to working collaboratively with staff and volunteers, the Board of Trustees, and all external partners, to continue to deliver innovative HIV and sexual health services across England, Scotland and Wales, in what are undoubtedly challenging times, with cuts to health and social care budgets.”
For over 20 years Ian held a number of positions of public office in the London Borough of Ealing: as an elected member of the Council; Cabinet Member for Adult Social Services and Housing; and as Mayor. He has also held a number of non-executive roles in the NHS.
For five years Ian was Chair of Ealing Hospital NHS Trust and is currently a member of the board of West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group - the body responsible for commissioning health services for a population of over 500,000 - where he chairs the Clinical Governance Committee.
Robert Glick, Chair of the Board of Trustees, Terrence Higgins Trust, said:
“On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to congratulate Ian on his appointment, and we look forward to his tenure beginning this coming March.
“Ian has a track record of strong leadership, and we are confident that he will ensure that Terrence Higgins Trust continues as the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity.
“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Jackie Morton for her tremendous work as interim CEO of Terrence Higgins Trust. Jackie’s guidance and commitment, and the support she has shown to all staff and volunteers, has positioned to charity well for the next stage in its development.”
Ian will take up his post on 1 March.
