Bletchley Park Trust names new chief executive
FORMER Army colonel Iain Standen is to take over as chief executive of Bletchley Park Trust. He succeeds Simon Greenish, who is due to step down at the end of this month.
Mr Greenish joined the Trust in 2006 at a time when the future of the historic Bletchley Park site was in great jeopardy. He implemented a radical recovery programme. Since then, Bletchley Park has been transformed into a secure heritage site with global repute and exceptional prospects.
Mr Greenish said: “The past six years have certainly been challenging but also most rewarding and worthwhile. I have had the privilege of meeting and receiving the support of some extraordinary people.
"I am pleased to be leaving Bletchley Park in such a greatly improved position compared with its previous situation.”
His successor has recently retired from the British Army as a Colonel in the Royal Corps of Signals.
Mr Standen (pictured) said: “Over the years, I have followed the progress of Bletchley Park with enormous interest. I am greatly looking forward to taking on the challenge of leading the Trust as it continues its programme of restoration and development as a world-class museum.”
