NCVO's new Chief Executive Announced


… and the winner is …. Karl Wilding!

NCVO has announced that Karl Wilding has been promoted to Chief Executive and will take over from Sir Stuart Etherington when he retires in the autumn. Karl is currently Director of Public Policy and Volunteering at NCVO.

NCVO’s Chair, Peter Kellner said: “When we embarked on the recruitment process we knew NCVO needed to adapt to big changes in the charity sector and civil society more widely. We set out to find the person who could best meet these challenges and provide a new direction for NCVO. Karl’s awareness of these challenges and his strategy for change were compelling.

“Karl is a strong communicator with a sharp strategic focus, and he has an instinctive understanding of both the complexities within the voluntary sector and the values that unify it. His experience as a voluntary sector leader, a trustee and a volunteer give him a holistic view of what charities and volunteering need for the future.

“As head of research, Karl made NCVO’s research on charity finances the standard for rigour and reliability, and as director of policy and volunteering he has been a high-profile and effective advocate for the voluntary sector and volunteering.
