Appointment of Baroness Stowell as chair of the Charity Commission

Commenting on the appointment of Tina Stowell as chair of the Charity Commission, Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, said:

I am looking forward to working with Baroness Stowell. I think she will bring fresh ideas to the role, and her emphasis on the importance of working in partnership with the sector at her pre-appointment hearing yesterday was welcome.

While I believe that on this occasion we have ended up with a good appointee, there are evidently still significant problems with the appointment process for this role. We have previously raised this matter and continue to believe improvements should be made.

The Commission and the sector have a number of tough challenges ahead and we should all now be thinking about how we work together to tackle them.
