Marks & Spencer CEO appointed as vice president of UNICEF UK

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Marks & Spencer CEO appointed as vice president of UNICEF UK

The Marks & Spencer chief executive is a long standing supporter of the organisation which works to raise money for its global work for children, as well as advocating and working for the rights of children in the UK and internationally.

Bolland will join a team of vice presidents which includes Lord Hastings of Scarisbrick CBE, Cathy Turner, Tim Clark, Mark Makepeace, and Lord Carter of Barnes. The team works alongside the president of UNICEF UK, Lord Paddy Ashdown, to advise and support the executive director David Bull and UNICEF UK staff in achieving the organisation’s mission for children.

UNICEF UK president Lord Ashdown said: "Welcoming Marc into the UNICEF family is an honour. We very much appreciate the huge commitment he has already shown to UNICEF in a personal capacity and we are privileged to gain the expertise of such a key figure within the UK private sector. 

"Marc’s role as a leading proponent of sustainability and social responsibility in the corporate world, combined with his commitment to UNICEF’s vision of creating a world fit for children makes us even more hopeful about the contribution we in the UK can make to UNICEF’s global work for children."

Bolland added: "I have been involved with UNICEF for a number of years and have also been privileged enough to witness their incredible work firsthand during the Haiti earthquake when I worked at the UNICEF crisis centre.  I am delighted to maintain my involvement with this exceptional charity and to continue to help change and save the lives of children across the world."
