The CAT Board of Trustees has today announced that it has accepted the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Peter Tyldesley.
During Peter’s time as CEO he has led a highly experienced team in the development of CAT’s new five year strategy and has overseen the organisation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This period also saw the launch of CAT’s new Zero Carbon Britain Hub and Innovation Lab and the planning stages of a new visitor experience and sustainable skills hub.
CAT Chair of Trustees Mick Taylor said:
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees and everyone at CAT, I would like to thank Peter for leading the team through the challenges of COVID-19, and for helping build the foundations for the next exciting phase of CAT’s work.
“Peter leaves CAT in a strong position from which to expand its activities and impact, with a robust strategy in place and an experienced team at the helm.”
Outgoing CEO Peter Tyldesley said:
“It has been a privilege to lead such a fantastic team, building on CAT’s 50 years of experience in environmental solutions. CAT’s work on the climate and biodiversity crisis has never been more important or more urgent. I look forward to remaining a member of CAT and supporting its work for many years to come.”
CAT’s Senior Management Team will lead the organisation whilst the Board plans the transition to a new CEO. A further announcement on succession plans will be made in due course.
