Dr Martin Warren has announced that he plans to stand down as Chief Executive of Butterfly Conservation (BC) at the end of 2016.

Martin has worked for BC for more than 22 years and took over as Chief Executive in 2003. He intends to continue working part time for BC Europe, which he helped found in 2004, as well as having more time to pursue his own research on butterflies both in the UK and Europe.

Martin’s impact on the growth and reputation of BC is huge and we owe him a great deal for what he has achieved during his work with us and we will be sad to see him leave.

The post of Chief Executive is currently being advertised widely with the aim of having a successor in place by December.

The Trustees are seeking candidates with the right combination of skills, experience and personal qualities to ensure continuity of this important position.
