Preferred candidate for Natural Resources Wales chair confirmed

 

Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths, has announced Sir David Henshaw is the Welsh Government’s preferred candidate to become the chair of Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

Sir David is currently NRW’s interim Chair and has been in post since 1 November 2018.

Before the chair of NRW is formally appointed, the National Assembly’s Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee will hold a pre-appointment hearing on 26 September to take evidence from Sir David as the preferred candidate.

Sir David’s announcement as the preferred candidate follows a fair and open recruitment exercise regulated by the Commission for Public Appointments. 

Natural Resources Wales is the largest Welsh Government Sponsored Body - employing 1,900 staff across Wales with a budget of £180 million.
