Martin Houghton-Brown is the new chief executive of Missing People
Houghton-Brown will join in August from the Children's Society, where he is currently deputy director of business development. He will replace Paul Tuohy, who has been in the role for four years. "Moving from Yorkshire and regional working to London and national working was a big step three years ago," said Houghton-Brown. "Stepping into the Children's Society, where the networks, ground work and systems were all established, was a joy. As I approach the leadership of Missing People, I can see various challenges. How do we harness the huge talent of a passionate and dedicated team, but also our partners in the police, government and other organisations to bring real help to those who are missing? In the coming year, I expect our income to grow, the number of volunteers to increase and our partners to understand why Missing People is a unique charity."
