The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) has announced the appointment of Lizzie Lockett as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Lizzie joined the College as Head of Communications in February 2005 following a career in marketing and public relations, including a period as managing director of a marketing agency.
She was appointed as Director of Strategic Communications in November 2015 and Deputy CEO in September 2016. When Nick Stace left the position of CEO at the end of September 2017 she took over as Acting CEO.
Lizzie said: “I am delighted and feel honoured to have been chosen to take the College forward into its next stage of development. I see the Council’s choice of an internal candidate, able to maintain momentum for change and help the College continue on our current strategic path, as an endorsement of the amazing work of the staff at Belgravia House.
“Under Nick Stace’s leadership, the College achieved some really excellent things for the profession, the public, and animal health and welfare, and I look forward to our next exciting chapter.”
