The Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust has announced the appointment of Richard Morsley as its new Chief Executive.

Mr Morsley succeeds Bill Ferris, OBE DL and has worked for the Trust since September 2019, most recently holding the position of Special Projects Manager and Assistant Chief Executive. He won the role after undergoing a comprehensive interview process.
Mr Morsley said: “I am delighted and feel incredibly privileged to have been selected to take forward the ambitions of the Trust.

“Navigating the last four months of the unplanned Covid-19 crisis has been difficult.”
He admitted that steering the dockyard ‘into a somewhat uncharted future’ would be ‘demanding’, but said: “I look forward to working with the Board of Trustees, our highly committed, professional team and our dedicated volunteers as we approach the future with confidence.”
