Bentley takes helm at FPA

Sexual health charity FPA has chosen current Suzy Lamplugh Trust chief executive Julie Bentley to replace its retiring chief executive Anne Weyman.

Bentley, who will take up the post in January, said she had always admired the work of FPA, formerly the Family Planning Association, on protecting abortion rights and promoting contraception and sex education. “I am delighted to be appointed as the chief executive of a charity whose work is as relevant and critical to our society as ever,” she said.

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.
