  Dear all
 
  I am very pleased to be able to announce today that Wikimedia UK has been
  been fortunate enough to secure as our new CEO Lucy Crompton-Reid,
  currently Director of the national live literature charity Apples and
  Snakes. Lucy brings extensive experience in volunteer engagement,
  organisational development, working with strategic partners, media,
  education, and securing external fundraising from trusts and foundations.
 
  Over the course of her career Lucy has worked in both the charitable and
  public sectors, including most recently Head of Outreach at the House of
  Lords where she was strategic and operational lead for education and
  outreach activities. Before that, she worked at Arts Council England,
  initially developing strategic partnerships before setting up a new area
  office with local government and schools partnerships. As Refugee Week
  National Co-ordinator for the British Refugee Council, Lucy chaired the
 UK
  steering group of NGOs and charities, led on media activities, and
  facilitated hundreds of volunteer cultural events each year. Lucy is
  passionate about education and learning and is deeply committed to
 ensuring
  open access to knowledge and information.
 
  Lucy will be joining us in early October. In the meantime, our interim
  CEO, D'Arcy Myers, will remain in post and will be working with Lucy to
  ensure a smooth handover.
 
  Please join me in offering Lucy a very warm welcome.

 for
  Wikimedia and for the open knowledge sector more broadly, with the
  potential to create unparalleled access to educational content, coupled

  through Wikipedia and its sister projects, and other Wikimedia UK
