Lever’s last position was at volunteering charity WRVS. He spent 12 years there, rising from director of training to the chief executive post in 2002. He left last September.

“Autism is a fascinating and much misunderstood condition and the pressures on families are immense, but there are also great opportunities right now for the NAS to move things forward,” he said.

Before joining the charity sector, Lever was a partner at Kidsons (now Baker Tilly) Chartered Accountants. He will join the society next month and will work alongside the outgoing chief executive for two weeks before Beauchamp leaves in March.
