Anne Godfrey has been announced as the new chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, taking her place in January.

Ms Godfrey has been the chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) since 2012 and is former CBI commercial director.

She will be taking over from Graham Jukes who announced he was standing down earlier this year after 16 years of leading the organisation.

Previously CEO of the Guild of Travel Management Companies, Ms Godfrey has had leadership roles in a diverse range of membership organisations, including the Law Society, where she was director of commercial and membership services.

Ms Godfrey said: ‘I am delighted to be joining the CIEH and look forward to working with the staff, members, stakeholders and presidential team to ensure the CIEH’s continuing relevance to the profession and those who work within it.’

President of the CIEH, Tim Everett, said: ‘We are extremely pleased to announce that Anne will be joining us in January 2016 as our new chief executive following Graham’s decision to step down earlier this year, she is the right strategic fit for the organisation at this time of change.

‘Anne is looking forward to working with the CIEH’s presidential team to ensure that we continue to advance the professional agenda and engage fully with our members and key stakeholders. On behalf of everyone involved with the CIEH, we wish Anne all the very best in her new role.’

The last four chief executives of the CIEH have been men, and the previous ten honorary secretaries and general secretaries have also all been men.

Mr Jukes said:  ‘I’m absolutely delighted that Anne has been appointed to take over the reins of this fantastic organisation which represents and supports an essential profession in the advancement of public and environmental health as well as being the premier awarding body for quality training in food safety and health and safety at work.’

Mr Jukes has worked in environmental health roles for 44 years and originally joined the staff at CIEH in 1988. He was awarded an OBE for his services to environmental health in 2014.

He will take up a new role as Vice President at the beginning of 2016. In the coming months he will concentrate on preparing the CIEH for the arrival of new CEO, as well as maintaining the CIEH’s current agenda.
