[Wikimedia-l] Welcoming Lucy Crompton-Reid as new CEO of Wikimedia UK
Dear all

I am very pleased to be able to announce today that Wikimedia UK has
been been fortunate enough to secure as our new CEO Lucy Crompton-Reid,
currently Director of the national live literature charity Apples and
Snakes. Lucy brings extensive experience in volunteer engagement,
organisational development, working with strategic partners, media,
education, and securing external fundraising from trusts and foundations.

Over the course of her career Lucy has worked in both the charitable and
public sectors, including most recently Head of Outreach at the House of
Lords where she was strategic and operational lead for education and
outreach activities. Before that, she worked at Arts Council England,
initially developing strategic partnerships before setting up a new area
office with local government and schools partnerships. As Refugee Week
National Co-ordinator for the British Refugee Council, Lucy chaired the
UK steering group of NGOs and charities, led on media activities, and
facilitated hundreds of volunteer cultural events each year. Lucy is
passionate about education and learning and is deeply committed to
ensuring open access to knowledge and information.

Lucy will be joining us in early October. In the meantime, our interim
CEO, D'Arcy Myers, will remain in post and will be working with Lucy to
ensure a smooth handover.

Please join me in offering Lucy a very warm welcome.

Lucy says

/I'm delighted to be joining Wikimedia UK this October as the charity's
new Chief Executive, and look forward to working with the staff team,
board and volunteer community -- as well as national and international
partners -- to develop the work of the organisation. This is a
significant time for Wikimedia and for the open knowledge sector more
broadly, with the potential to create unparalleled access to educational
content, coupled with threats to limit public access to information and
knowledge. With nearly 18 years' experience in the arts, charitable and
public sectors, I'm passionate about participation, and excited about
the opportunity to facilitate greater public engagement with online
content and information through Wikipedia and its sister projects, and
other Wikimedia UK initiatives./

Michael Maggs

Chair, Wikimedia UK
