Woodland Trust announces departure of CEO

The Woodland Trust has announced CEO, Sue Holden, will be leaving the organisation to take up an executive director role with conservation charity Earthwatch.

Chairman of the Trust, Nicola Nicholls, said: “The Trust wishes Sue well in her new venture. Earthwatch is an admirable environmental charity and we have no doubt she will be a great success there. Sue leaves the Trust in a strong financial position, with an experienced senior team in place ready to deliver its exciting new conservation strategy.

“Our focus now will be on recruiting a person of the highest calibre to deliver the Trust’s strategic aims and to build on past successes.”

Sue Holden added: “I leave the Woodland Trust with a mixture of excitement and sadness. My new role as executive director Europe, with a global charity like Earthwatch, will allow me to pursue my interests as a geographer and environmentalist at an international level. The Woodland Trust is a fantastic organisation, striving to protect ancient woodland and increase native woodland cover. I have loved working there and will continue to be inspired by its achievements.”

Ms Holden will take up her new post in January 2014.
