John Whitaker, Ethical Property Foundation Chairman, said: “The Board and I are looking forward to working with Antonia as we enter our tenth year of helping charities make the most of their properties. She has had a varied and successful professional life and her experience in the non-profit sector in particular will be a huge asset to the Foundation.”
“I would also like to thank Jo Taylor, who has led the Foundation since its formation and leaves us in a very strong position. Her hard work and excellent leadership has enabled us to make a genuine difference to over a thousand charitable organisations. We wish her well for her future freelance career.”
