Ed Bramham-Jones takes up new role as CEO
Thursday April 6th, 2023
We’re delighted to announce that Ed Bramham-Jones has been appointed as our new Chief Executive.
Ed will be starting with immediate effect, following the retirement of Chief Executive and founding member David Diggens, who will continue to be involved in the Trust as our new ‘President’.
During David’s time, NRT has established itself as a determined and trusted charity in its mission to restore, protect and enhance the water environments of Norfolk. The Trust has expanded considerably in recent years, both in size and ambition, increasingly working at a landscape and catchment scale.
Dr Geoff Brighty, Chair of Norfolk Rivers Trust commented: “It’s been a privilege to work with David in my time as a Trustee, and particularly as chair in the last year. The organisation and the environment of Norfolk owes him a great debt of gratitude, through his boundless energy, passion, and commitment over his past 12 years of service. His leadership to make our rivers and wetlands better protected, and improved, has made a real difference. He leaves us with a fantastic team, well-established and trusted partnerships, and the confidence to grow, innovate and deliver even more. It’s a legacy he can be truly proud of. And now as our first President, we know he will continue to promote Norfolk Rivers Trust, to help us be sustainable for the long term.”
Ed steps into the job after 7 years at the Trust, undertaking various roles including Farm Team Leader and Operations Director.
Ed Bramham-Jones said: “I’m truly honoured to have been appointed as the new CEO of this fantastic organisation, building on the incredible work that has been achieved by my predecessor, David Diggens, as well as the rest of the Norfolk Rivers Trust team.
As we move forward, my focus will be on continuing to forge collaborative, positive relationships with stakeholders, communities, and partner organisations, guiding us to be ever bolder and more impactful as we strive to improve the health of our rivers.”
