R.A.B.I appoints new CEO

The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.) has appointed Alicia Chivers as its new chief executive. Alicia will take over from Paul Burrows in November 2018.

A qualified chartered accountant from a farming family, Alicia is currently the CEO of the RAF Central Fund, a charity providing support to those serving in the RAF. Alicia brings more than 15 years of senior charitable management experience to R.A.B.I.

Alicia said: “I am delighted to be joining R.A.B.I and look forward to building on the fantastic work of Paul and the team. Farming faces some major challenges over the next couple of years but R.A.B.I will continue to stand alongside the community, providing invaluable support to families suffering hardship, often through no fault of their own. Having grown up on and around farms, I see R.A.B.I as the charitable heart of the farming community and I am honoured to be a part of the team.”

R.A.B.I chairman, Malcolm Thomas MBE added: “Paul’s dedication over many years has been immense and I would personally like to thank him for everything he has done to move our organisation forward. I am confident that Alicia will bring fresh new ideas to R.A.B.I to build on the foundations that are already in place. It could be a difficult winter for many in farming, but rest assured, R.A.B.I is here to help.”
