Wilton Park’s current Chief Executive, Richard Burge, will leave the organisation to take on the leadership of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC), where he has been appointed Chief Executive.
Joining Wilton Park in September 2009, Richard has applied his innovative vision to ensure Wilton Park has continued to successfully convene and facilitate global policy dialogues with increasing efficiency and impact.
2016 sees Richard guide Wilton Park into its 70th year of existence as an institution, its 65th year at Wiston House and its 25th year as an Executive Agency of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
He will take up the position of Chief Executive with CWEIC in April 2017. Until that time, Richard will continue to lead Wilton Park through one of the busiest and most significant periods in its history.
