Changing Faces seeks new Chief Executive

Changing Faces has begun the search for a new Chief Executive.

Founder and current Chief Executive, Dr James Partridge OBE, is to stand aside once an appointment has been made but will remain as an adviser to the charity on fundraising and other key areas.

David Clayton, Changing Faces’ Chair of Trustees, said: “It is quite incredible to see how far Changing Faces has come since James started the charity in 1992, and its progress and successes are testament to his drive, dedication and leadership. As we approach our twenty-fifth birthday in 2017, we are all agreed that it’s time to find his successor, someone who can lead the charity into the next phase of its development with equal skill and determination.”

The charity has appointed executive search specialists GatenbySanderson to lead the recruitment process, which it is hoped will be completed in the autumn. Katy Giddens, Partner of its Not for Profit Practice said: “At GatenbySanderson we specialise in identifying and recruiting talented and inspirational leaders. We are delighted to be working with Changing Faces at this pivotal time to help secure an outstanding successor to James”.

Changing Faces will not be making any further comment on the recruitment process, or on Dr Partridge’s future plans with the charity, until a new Chief Executive is announced.
