He will take over as existing CEO retires
A leading Scottish environmental charity has appointed a new chief executive.
Josiah Lockhart (pictured) will take over at Changeworks next month, with existing CEO Teresa Bray retiring.
He joins the charity after five years at the helm of at social enterprise support agency FirstPort, and will drive the delivery of Changeworks’ new 22-25 strategy which is focussed around decarbonising Scotland’s homes.
The strategy will underpin all of the charity’s work over the next three years, during a crucial time for Scotland’s emissions targets and net zero ambitions.
Del Redvers, chair of the Changeworks board, paid tribute to the outgoing Teresa Bray, who had been in charge of the organisation for 14 years.
He said: "Teresa has been a terrific leader and champion of change in spearheading the Changeworks mission of making low-carbon living a reality for all. Under her leadership, Changeworks has developed a vital role in achieving Scotland’s climate goals through a just transition and is well prepared to have an even greater impact in the future.
“We look forward to welcoming Josiah to the team."
