The former director of fundraising at St Paul's Cathedral takes over from Chris Millward, who has joined the Legacy Voice consultancy

Matthew Lagden has taken over from Chris Millward as chief executive of the Institute of Legacy Management.

Lagden, a former director of fundraising at St Paul’s Cathedral, joined the membership body for legacy professionals on Monday. He previously worked for the ILM for a year in 2001 as a legacy officer.

Millward, who has led the ILM since 2015, will leave at the end of the week to join the consultancy Legacy Voice as director of consultancy.

Lagden said in a statement: "It is a great privilege to be coming back and helping to shape the future of the organisation.

"I would like to thank Chris for all his hard work over the past few years, and I hope that I can continue to build on the firm foundations that he has laid."

Since leaving St Paul’s in 2015, Lagden has run his own fundraising consultancy. Before that he worked at Action for Children, the Stroke Association and the British Heart Foundation.

Maria King, chair of the ILM, said: "Matthew brings with him a huge amount of expertise and fresh thinking that will help the ILM develop its next organisational strategy. We’re thrilled to have him on board.

"We would like to thank Chris for his outstanding contribution to the ILM and wish him all the best for the future."
