VERTIC's Board of Trustees selects new Chair and President of the VERTIC Charity

VERTIC’s Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that Dr Edwina Moreton will assume the chairmanship of the Board, effective today. Andreas Persbo, Executive Director, said: ‘It’s been a great pleasure working alongside Sir Hugh Beach and Owen Greene over the last few years, and I am very grateful for the advice and direction that they’ve offered over this time. I am very much looking forward to working with Edwina in the coming years. She will bring new perspectives to the charity, and surely help us to explore exciting new research areas’.

The Board has also selected General Hugh Beach as President of the VERTIC Charity. Andreas Persbo said ‘Sir Hugh has been a towering presence in the British arms control and disarmament community for decades. His sharp intellect is only surpassed by his humanism and kindness. We have been honoured to have him serve on our board for almost two decades, and giving him the newly established title President of the Charity is the very least we can do to show our appreciation and respect.’

These positions were confirmed today at VERTIC’s Annual General Meeting. The biographies for Dr Moreton and General Beach can be found here.
