Aid charity umbrella body Bond has appointed Stephanie Draper as its new chief executive.
Interim chief executive Judith Brodie, who has been in post since former permanent chief executive Tamsyn Barton left in April last year, will leave the organisation when Draper starts in mid-March.
Draper is currently chief change officer and deputy chief executive at environmental sustainability charity Forum for the Future, where she has worked in various roles for 15 years.
She also chairs the Sustainable Shipping Initiative charity.
Draper said: “I am committed to accelerating a just and sustainable future, and eradicating poverty, inequality and injustice. This is what has brought me to Bond.
“I want to use my extensive experience of bringing sectors together to shape a better future and create the impactful, systemic change that is necessary to achieve the UN Global Goals.”
Caroline Nursey, Bond’s chair, said: “I am delighted to welcome Stephanie to the chief executive role at Bond. She brings significant leadership experience with her and a track record in helping sectors to evolve and change.
“We have been hugely impressed by her strategic thinking, energy and enthusiasm, and feel that Stephanie will both lead and challenge the network in a clear and collaborative way.
“Stephanie joins Bond at a point when the challenges and opportunities presented by the Sustainable Development Goals, safeguarding, by Brexit and the pressures on civil society space make the Bond network even more essential in the eradication of global poverty, inequality and injustice.”
