New Director of Development

Maria McCaffery MBE - New Director of Development 

Peter Rand, FHL Vice Chairman and Executive Trustee writes: “I am very pleased to welcome Maria McCaffery as FHL's Director of Development. During the next couple of months Maria will complete her existing engagements and build her commitment to FHL to 4 days a week. For 10 years Maria was Chief Executive of RenewableUK, the UK’s leading trade association for renewable energy, employing 54 staff with a turnover of £6.5 million. Prior to that Maria was Director General of the Institute of Export and was awarded an MBE in 1999 for services to international trade. She hails from Liverpool and lives in Kenilworth, just 10 minutes’ walk from the office!! FHL is fortunate that she now wishes to give her time and experience to work with our many volunteers around the country to further grow our charity.”

Maria adds “I am absolutely delighted to be more actively involved with FHL and am overwhelmed by the warmth of the welcome I’ve received from everyone; colleagues, trustees, and volunteers - I’m very much looking forward to putting more faces to names in the future.”

The work that Vicki, our previous Director of Development, undertook securing funds from Charitable Trusts and Foundations would be moving to a new part-time role, we would keep you updated on recruitment.
