EILISH McGUINNESS has been named The National Lottery Heritage Fund’s (NLHF) next Chief Executive as the organisation marks its 40th anniversary.
She will begin in the new year, with outgoing Chief Executive ROS KERSLAKE stepping down at the end of 2021.
McGuinness joined NLHF in 1996 and is currently Executive Director of Business Delivery, having held a variety of operational and strategic roles.
"I want to pay tribute to Ros Kerslake, our trustees, our committees and our brilliant staff for all their work in delivering not only National Lottery funding but also emergency funding on behalf of government departments in three countries," McGuinness said.
"I look forward to ensuring we continue to be responsive to the needs of the heritage as we recover from the pandemic."
