ISCA appoints new CEO

The Governance Institute (ICSA) has appointed Sara Drake as its next CEO. She will be taking over the role from Simon Osborne, who is due to step down June 2019.

Drake will be joining ICSA in March 2019 as designated CEO.

Prior to this, Drake was chief executive of the Association for Project Management, and has also held managing director roles at the Royal Town Planning Institute and the Homebuilders Federation.

In Drake’s new role at ICSA, she will be responsible for members and students in the UK, Crown Dependencies, Republic of Ireland, sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, the Caribbean and further afield.

ICSA’s president John Heaton said: “Sara has a wealth of experience working with professional bodies and we have appointed a person who I am confident will build on Simon’s achievements as chief executive.

“I look forward to working with Sara to further extend the reach and voice of ICSA: The Governance Institute, working with current and future members and all those involved in the field of governance to further strengthen our position as the leading professional body for governance professionals.”

Drake commented: “It is a great privilege to be appointed Chief Executive of an institution which has been at the heart of good governance for 128 years. I look forward to helping the Institute drive governance policy forward, as well as ensuring that ICSA continues to meet the needs of the modern governance professional.

“The complexity of the global governance landscape means that the demand for high-calibre individuals to lead good governance is greater than ever. I am delighted to be joining an institution with such a proud history of training and supporting those who perform such a crucial role.”
