Mike Dixon succeeds Tony Rogers, who retired after a period as acting chief executive after the resignation of Stephen Ainger in October 2006. John Grout, who was acting finance director, returns to his job as financial control director.

Dixon, who will join CAF on 1 March, was a chartered accountant at Price Waterhouse before joining HSBC as finance director in 1993. He said his appointment at CAF was the fulfilment of a long-held ambition to move into the charity sector.

“In 2006 I became a trustee of Addaction, Britain’s largest specialist drug and alcohol treatment charity, something that I really enjoy,” he said. “I look forward to playing a significant part in the future success of CAF and the charitable sector.”

John Low, chief executive of CAF, said Dixon had a wealth of experience in finance, insurance and Financial Services Authority-regulated organisations. He said: “He will help us to generate more funds for charities, giving them the chance to achieve even more.”
