Christophers in forestry switch

The Forestry Commission’s research arm has appointed Barnardo’s head of publishing and communications as its new comms director.

Dr Xanthe Christophers arrives at Forest Research after four years with the children’s charity, returning to the field of natural resources after a spell at research unit Natural Resources International from 1997 to 2000.

Christophers is managing the library, publications, the internet and intranet site, business development and internal comms.

The research body’s aim is to protect the UK’s forests and woodlands, and to support forestry and its role in sustainable development.

Christophers takes the role following the retirement of head of comms John Parker two years ago.
