David Robb, head of public service reform and efficiency for the Scottish government, has been appointed the new chief executive of the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.

Robb, who will take over from outgoing chief executive Jane Ryder in October, has also been director of policy and development at the Scottish Public Sector Ombudsman.

He has also worked as head of the Scottish government’s public bodies policy division and as a policy adviser in the First Minister’s Policy Unit.

"I feel hugely privileged to take on such a well-established organisation and play a major role in the challenges and opportunities ahead," said Robb in a statement. 

"Over the past years, OSCR has shown itself to be a strong and greatly valued organisation, and I’m very much looking forward to meeting as many people as possible in the charity sector to hear their views and thoughts as we shape our future priorities."

Ryder, who has been chief executive of the OSCR since it was set up in 2003, announced earlier this year that she would leave the regulator in September at the end of her contract.
