Strachan prepares to give up reins as RNID recruits leader

Dr John Low has been appointed as chief executive of the RNID.

He will succeed James Strachan, who has held the position for the past five years and is making a controversial move to become chairman of the organisation.

Low, who will take up the position in November, is executive director for research, technology and health at the RNID and comes from a product and business development background.

He assisted Strachan in setting up a partnership with the Department of Health to push for the introduction of advanced digital hearing aids on the NHS.

He also formed a bio-medical and technical research programme and the telephone relay service RNID Typetalk.
