The hearing loss charity RNID has promoted Paul Hayward to director of fundraising.
Hayward has spent the past two years as head of public fundraising at the charity.
Before joining the RNID – or Action on Hearing Loss as it was at the time, before reverting to its former name – Hayward was head of individual giving at Asthma UK.
He previously worked for charities including Breast Cancer Campaign and the Church Urban Fund.
Tim Willett, executive director of funding, brand and communications at the RNID, said: “Paul’s experience and approach will be invaluable in growing the contribution of this important pillar of our organisational funding strategy.
“His appointment will free up time and capacity to focus on other income streams and innovation that are critical to creating a sustainable future.”
Hayward said: "I've really enjoyed being part of a team that played a key role in helping RNID deliver its first surplus in many years last year, and responded to Covid-19 in an innovative way that put the needs of our supporters and beneficiaries first.
“I'm looking forward to being part of an incredibly exciting future at the charity."
