Newly merged age charity appoints senior managers

Some directors lose out as new seven-strong team includes four from Age Concern England and three from Help the Aged

Soon-to-merge charities Help the Aged and Age Concern England have shared out senior management positions in the new organisation.

The seven-strong senior director team consists of four directors from Age Concern England and three from Help the Aged.

Michelle Mitchell, communications director at Age Concern England, will assume the role of senior charity director for policy and influencing in the new charity, and Gordon Morris, currently managing director of Age Concern Enterprises, will lead commercial operations.

Heléna Herklots, regional operations and service development director at Age Concern England, becomes services director, and Stephanie Harland, deputy director and development director, has been appointed strategy director.

From Help the Aged, fundraising and marketing director Amanda Ball becomes group marketing director. Retail director Hugh Forde takes on the role of managing director, trading and training, and finance director Charles Scott has been appointed group finance director.

The new directors will take up their posts on 1 March, and the merged charity will be formally launched a month later.

Senior directors from each charity – including Ailsa Ogilvie, director of axed subsidiary Heyday – who have not been appointed to new roles will continue in their current roles until the end of March.

A spokesman for the merged organisation said these directors would have the option to apply for new positions in the merged charity.
