FPA chair Ian Plaistowe described Bentley as an effective leader with an impressive track record of strategic planning and financial management. “Her enthusiastic approach and strong communication skills will benefit the entire organisation and help lead FPA into the next phase of its development,” he said.
He also paid tribute to Weyman, who will retire at the end of December. “Anne’s outstanding leadership, breadth of vision and passionate commitment has secured FPA’s position as the leading campaigning charity in sexual health,” he said.
Weyman said: “I am delighted that I will be handing over the baton to Julie’s capable hands and look forward to working with her to achieve a very smooth transfer.
