Philippa Carrick: 14 years as CEO of Tibet Society PDF Print E-mail
[30 November 2015] After serving 14 years as the Chief Executive Officer of Tibet Society, Philippa Carrick is stepping down. Philippa is to become the full-time CEO of Tibet Relief Fund. Tibet Society would like to thank Philippa for her years of service, dedication and hard work.

Philippa CarrickIn 2002, Philippa was appointed CEO of the then joint organisation Tibet Society and Relief Fund. In 2007, with new charity laws requiring the separation of political and charity work, Philippa oversaw the formation of two distinct organisations, Tibet Society and Tibet Relief Fund.

Philippa continued as CEO of both organisations, working part-time for both. However, the growth and demands of Tibet Relief Fund's charitable work now require a full-time CEO.

Philippa said, "It is with a heavy heart that I have to give up my role with Tibet Society. I have very much enjoyed my time with Tibet Society and will miss the political aspects, especially working with MPs and the Foreign Office. I hope to see Tibet Society continue to grow and flourish in the future."

Philippa & APPGTAs Tibet Society is the Secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Tibet (APPGT), Philippa has been the Group's Administrator during her term as Tibet Society's CEO. Members of the APPGT honoured her work at a meeting last week. Fabian Hamilton MP, Chair of the APPGT, said Philippa had been a great servant not only to the APPGT but to the Tibet movement as a whole. APPGT members then presented Philippa with a gift of champagne flutes engraved with the House of Commons logo.

Philippa's last day as CEO of Tibet Society is 30 November 2015. As of 1 December, Philippa will be the full-time CEO of
Tibet Relief Fund.

An announcement on Philippa's successor will be made in due course.
