New Director appointed for CCT

CCT is delighted to announce that Helen Pitman has been appointed to the new post of Director of CCT, from 12th October.  

Helen has had several thoroughly successful roles in the past few years, in WWF International and other like-minded organisations.  Her skills include conservation, strategy and planning and communications and campaigning, all of which will both help promote the aims and objectives of CCT and assist the Trustees with their roles.  

Her main roles will be to coordinate and foster the several strands of work that CCT is presently doing, and to liaise closely and co-operatively with both BIOT and with other conservation and science initiatives regarding Chagos, such as the other members of the Chagos Environment Network and a new science consortium currently under formation.

“I am extremely happy to be joining the CCT and look forward to working with all those dedicated to preserving this very important place. I hope that my skills and experience from over a decade in the conservation sector will help CCT go from strength to strength, well into the future.” said Helen.

One of Helen’s first tasks will be to assist in the organisation of the annual seminar day and AGM on Friday 27 November at ZSL, where she will be introduced to Trustees and members that she has not already had meetings with.

We greatly welcome Helen and look forward to her joining the team and to the skills that she will bring to CCT
