Jehangir Malik, who has previously held the top role at Islamic Relief, has been appointed chief executive of Muslim Aid.
Malik was most recently chief executive of Olympic Legacy charity International Inspiration, a position which he held since his departure from Islamic Relief last September.
He had been at Islamic Relief for 23 years, starting as a volunteer and working up to national fundraising director, before spending his last six years at the charity as its UK director. He remains on the board of trustees at Acevo.
Dr Suhaib Hasan, chair of Muslim Aid, said on Malik’s appointment: “We are delighted to welcome Jehangir Malik OBE to his new role as chief executive officer of Muslim Aid.
He brings a great deal of experience to the role and we are confident that under his leadership the organisation will continue to flourish and go from strength-to-strength.”
Former Muslim Aid chief executive Hamid Azad was appointed to the role in 2014, before leaving the charity last year. Shuaib Yusuf, who was previously assistant chief executive, held the role of interm chief executive prior to Malik's appointment
