The international development umbrella body Bond has appointed Stephanie Draper as its new chief executive.

Draper, who is currently chief change officer and deputy chief executive at the international sustainability charity Forum for the Future, will take up the role in March.

She will replace Tamsyn Barton, who stood down in April for personal reasons after just over a year in the role.

Barton was later appointed chief commissioner of the Independent Commission for Aid Impact.

Draper will take over as chief executive of Bond after a turbulent year for the international development sector in the wake of the safeguarding scandals at major aid charities, specifically Oxfam and Save the Children.

Bond said in a statement that, in her previous roles, Draper had led the development of strategy and global programmes on nutrition, climate change and how to create "net-positive" organisations.

Caroline Nursey, chair of Bond, said Draper would bring "significant leadership experience" and a track record of helping sectors to evolve and change.

"We have been hugely impressed by her strategic thinking, energy and enthusiasm, and feel that Stephanie will both lead and challenge the network in a clear and collaborative way," said Nursey.

Draper said in a statement: "I am committed to accelerating a just and sustainable future, and eradicating poverty, inequality and injustice. This is what has brought me to Bond.

"I want to use my extensive experience of bringing sectors together to shape a better future and create the impactful, systemic change that is necessary to achieve the UN global goals."
