New Chair for Science Council will lead the drive for registration

Professor David Croisdale-Appleby OBE, FAcSS, Winner of The Sunday Times Non-Executive Director of the Year Award (2016), has been appointed Chair of the Science Council, the membership body for professional bodies supporting scientists and science technicians. 

Welcoming David to the Board, Chief Executive, Belinda Phipps said: “The Science Council is entering an exciting new phase in its development with the goal of registering all scientists and science technicians. For us to reach that goal we need to build a first class team with the experience and drive to get us there.

In addition to his legendary enthusiasm and energy, Professor Croisdale-Appleby brings with him an international reputation for growing organisations in the public sector and his recognition by successive governments of his contribution to the nation’s economic and social wellbeing through his extensive list of ministerial appointments and major leadership roles. 

The appointment of Professor David Croisdale-Appleby completes the appointments to the newly separated roles for President and Chair.  He is joining Sir Keith Burnett who became President last September.  A number of new trustees will be invited to join the Council in July with the aim of placing the organisation in the position to move rapidly towards its goal of registering all scientists and science technicians.
