She replaces Sally Costerton, director at Sally Costerton Advisory, in a move that was announced at the PRCA’s 42nd AGM, held on 22 November.

Clarke revealed that she would be focusing on ‘continued growth in services and membership, support and drive for our Apprenticeship Scheme, and greater collaboration and co-operation with other industry bodies both at home and on the international stage’.
