The Trust’s chief executive Stuart Brooks is set to leave the organisation at the end of February 2017 following eight years in charge. Stuart is to become the Head of Natural Heritage Policy at the National Trust for Scotland.

Peter Pearson, chair of the John Muir Trust says, “I would like to thank Stuart on behalf of trustees, staff and members for his significant contribution to the Trust. His commitment and dedication to the organisation has been absolute and we wish him every success in the next stage of his career.”

“During his tenure Stuart has increased the Trust’s profile and impact, improved the composition and culture within the organisation, while modernising its approaches to allow us to meet the increasing challenges conservation bodies in the UK currently face.”

“Stuart’s leadership has seen the organisation continue to be bold in meeting the Trust’s mission to conserve and protect wild places.”

The Trust has started the process to recruit a successor and will advertise for the role of chief executive in the next few weeks.
