Anne Godfrey to leave Chartered Institute of Environmental Health

The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) has today announced that Anne Godfrey is to leave the membership body following four successful years as Chief Executive.

Anne supported BPCA with several projects including helping to judge the British Pest Management Awards and arranging several joining events.

Having joined CIEH in 2016, Anne delivered a significant change programme to restore financial stability, refocus on membership and the profession and ensure a sustainable future.

The last four years have seen the organisation develop into an agile and dynamic professional body with a growing membership of practitioners from the public, private and third sectors.

Anne is leaving CIEH to join GS1 UK as their new Chief Executive and will take up her post in August.

Siraj Choudhury, Chair of the CIEH Board of Trustees, said:

“The comprehensive transformation of CIEH under Anne’s leadership has been remarkable. The organisation was in a financially precarious position when Anne joined us. As a result of her inspirational leadership, we have been able to take staff and members with us through our evolution. Anne leaves CIEH in a far stronger position.

"CIEH is now a forward-facing organisation that promotes the environmental health profession and puts members at the heart of everything we do. Anne has worked fantastically well with the Board of Trustees and has motivated the staff with her drive and enthusiasm. As a result, we now have a sustainable and influential organisation.

"We thank Anne for her immense contribution and we wish her well in her new role and for the future.”

Anne Godfrey, Chief Executive of CIEH, said:

“The last four years have been both challenging and rewarding and I am sad to be leaving such an amazing organisation, with dedicated staff, trustees, volunteers and members.

"The business turnaround we embarked upon in 2016 was not always easy. But I am proud of how far we have come and trust that the cultural and financial transformation that has taken place will ensure that CIEH continues to be the voice of our members and the profession.

"Environmental health is of vital importance to our country and our world, and I am honoured to have worked with so many people who make such a positive contribution to our society.

"I would like to thank staff, colleagues and members who helped deliver our transformation. It would not have happened without their commitment, passion and support.”
