Save the Children reveals chairman

Alan Parker, founder and chairman of Brunswick, is to replace Nick MacAndrew as chairman of Save the Children’s board of trustees in 2008.

MacAndrew said: ‘Alan’s long-standing commitment to the voluntary sector, ­coupled with his business ­experience and expertise, will be a real asset to Save the Children. He will be joining the board at a very important time and will help us del­iver our plans around the world.’

The charity said they had received an impressive level of interest in the position from leaders in a range of sectors.

Parker founded the international corporate and fin­ancial communications firm in 1987. It currently ­provides office space and IT facilities to three charities: Pilot Light, We Are What We Do and China Now.
