We’re pleased to announce that CAT’s Board of Directors has appointed Peter Tyldesley as Chief Executive Officer.
Currently CEO at conservation charity the Bradgate Park Trust, Peter has substantial experience in leadership and management, both directly and through his non-executive roles on charity and partnership boards. Previous roles include a range of appointments in Wales, including with Brecon Beacons National Park.
Peter brings to the role a strong personal commitment to sustainability and the environment, as well as to education.
CAT Chair of Trustees Mick Taylor said: “We are delighted to announce Peter’s appointment as CAT Chief Executive Officer. CAT’s environmental education and research work has never been more important, with the need for urgent action on climate change making it essential that more people gain knowledge, skills and understanding in environmental solutions. Peter’s leadership experience and commitment to sustainability make him ideally placed to lead the organisation at this crucial time.”
Peter said: “Having been a supporter of CAT’s work for many years, I am honoured and excited to be joining the organisation at a pivotal time for our planet. If we are to tackle dangerous climate change and other pressing environmental issues, we need to urgently roll out solutions – I’m looking forward to joining such a forward-looking and visionary organisation and helping to inspire change.”
Peter will take up the role in early September.
