Paul Amadi has been appointed director of fundraising at children's charity the NSPCC.

Amadi, who is director of fundraising at the RNIB and chair of the Institute of Fundraising, will take over from Giles Pegram, who will retire in April after 30 years in the role.

Amadi told Third Sector his "absolute commitment to the cause and passion for engaging donors" had made his application successful.

He said he would make sure the NSPCC's fundraising team retained a focus on donors.

"It's really important to make sure the donor's voice is heard," he said. "This can be as simple as making sure we communicate with them in the way they want to be communicated with, and tell them about the impact of their gift."

A spokesman for the NSPCC told Third Sector Amadi would start the job in January so that there would be a three-month handover period before Pegram left.

Amadi said he was looking forward to working alongside Pegram for the first three months of the job.

"Absorbing three decades of experience, knowledge and expertise will stand me in good stead," he said.
