Coeliac UK has appointed Hilary Croft as its new CEO from 3 June 2019.

Hilary has a background in business transformation within complex, multifaceted organisations. Her senior management career started in marketing with Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology and digital transformation services, where she worked with a variety of organisations, such as Virgin Atlantic, Sky, Lego and Royal Mail.

She is also a trustee of Age UK Ealing and a global fundraising committee member for Tearfund, a charity that helps communities around the world escape the very worst effects of poverty and disaster.

Mike Elliott, Coeliac UK’s chair of governors, said: “Hilary’s business and strategic acumen will bring new drive and impetus at this exciting time in Coeliac UK’s journey. The charity is currently entering a new ten year strategic review and requires an experienced change leader to adapt to a constantly evolving, complex environment. We feel Hilary is exceptionally qualified to lead Coeliac UK into the future and we look forward to welcoming her.”
