Richard Angell has been appointed the new Chief Executive of Terrence Higgins Trust, the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity.
He will take over on 1 March after the current CEO, Ian Green OBE, steps down after seven years in the position. Angell joined Terrence Higgins Trust in 2020 as its interim Head of Policy and Public Affairs before becoming Campaigns Director.
In this time, he has led on a year’s worth of activity to mark 40 years since the death of the charity’s namesake Terry Higgins, the first named person to die of an AIDS-related illness in the UK.
He has also overseen the charity’s response to mpox, previously referred to as monkeypox, as the charity worked to tackle stigma against gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men.
