New chief at Charity Commission will be BBC's Andrew Hind

The Charity Commission has appointed BBC World Service chief operating officer Andrew Hind as its first chief executive.

The post was created as part of the commission's move to establish a formal board and executive structure in response to the new Charities Bill.

Before joining the BBC, Hind worked as a senior executive at Action Aid and Barnardo's. He co-founded the Charity Finance Directors' Group in 1988 and has been a trustee of charities including VSO and the Diana, Princess of Wales, Memorial Fund. He will report to Geraldine Peacock, the incoming chair of the commission.

"Andrew's skills and knowledge will help us meet the challenges ahead as we implement the Charities Bill," said Peacock. "He will work with me to position the commission to face the future in a strong strategic way, and he has the right mix of experience."
