The new chairman of Northamptonshire Community Foundation has been appointed.
Paul Southworth OBE, previously chairman of Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership, takes over from David Laing, Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire.
He said: “It is a great honour to be asked to take over as chair of the Northamptonshire Community Foundation. Over the past few years the foundation has continued to grow and prosper under the guidance of David Laing as chair, Victoria Miles as chief executive, and her great support team.
“It is true to say that David will be a very hard act to follow, but I am truly excited about the future and continuing the excellent work being done by the Foundation in enhancing hundreds of lives throughout the community.”
