RNID appoints new chair

By Nathalie Thomas, Third Sector Online, 2 July 2007

Gerald Corbett, the former chief executive of Railtrack, has been appointed chairman of deafness charity the RNID.

Corbett, who has recently retired as chairman of the retail group Woolworths, will take over from James Strachan, who has been involved with the charity for the past 14 years, as both a trustee and chief executive.

“RNID is one of the leading voluntary organisations in the country and I want to build on the achievements of James and the management team,” Corbett said. “I am looking forward to working with everyone at the RNID on making the world a better place for deaf and hard of hearing people.”

Corbett is also non-executive chairman of Britvic, the drinks company, SSL International, a manufacturer of healthcare products and Greencore Group, a supplier of food ingredients.

He takes over formally on 26 October.
