Campbell Robb has been appointed as the new Chief Executive of social justice charity Nacro. He will take up his position in July 2019.
Campbell joins Nacro from his role leading the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) and Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust. Prior to JRF, Campbell was CEO of Shelter from 2010 to 2017 growing and leading the charity through a period of significant change. Previously, he was Director General of the Office of the Third Sector and Social Exclusion in the Cabinet Office.
Nigel Chapman, Nacro Chair of Trustees, said:
“We are delighted to welcome Campbell to Nacro. His extensive experience and track record of success leading Shelter, JRF and in Government will help the organisation continue to grow the support we deliver to disadvantaged young people and adults. Campbell’s ability to influence policy at all levels will improve the quality of the services for the people we support. His passion and commitment to social justice was evident throughout the recruitment process and has been demonstrated consistently throughout his career. Campbell will build on the strong legacy left by our outgoing CEO, Jacob Tas.”
Campbell Robb said:
“I am delighted to be joining Nacro at such an important time in its history. Since Nacro was founded more than 50 years ago, it has evolved to respond to the multiple and often complex needs of people who come through its doors. At a time of considerable social injustice, Nacro’s work providing education and skills; relieving homelessness; and supporting people with substance misuse problems and those coming out of prison is needed more than ever.”
