Jewish Care has gone in-house for its new chief executive, appointing fundraising and marketing director Daniel Carmel-Brown to succeed the long-serving Simon Morris from July.
Charity chair Steven Lewis said that during "a rigorous recruitment process, we interviewed nine candidates both from within and outside the organisation and the community. The interview panel were unanimous in their decision.
"Daniel Carmel-Brown has shown he has the experience, determination and vision to take on this role and address the significant challenges that come with leading a social care charity in 2018.
"I am looking forward to both supporting and challenging him to ensure Jewish Care strives to deliver the very best it can for the community.”
Mr Carmel-Brown has held positions of increasing responsibility at Jewish Care, having begun his career over two decades ago delivering front-line services.
In December, Mr Morris announced his decision to step down after 15 years as chief executive.
