Rica (the Research Institute for Consumer Affairs), the consumer champion for older and disabled people, has appointed Jon Quinn as its Chief Executive.
He joins Rica in April from Shelter, most recently as their Head of Campaigns, having previously worked with the Conservative party at a local, regional and national level, becoming Head of Campaign Literature at CCHQ.
Dr Phil Friend, OBE, Chair of the Rica board of trustees, said: “We are delighted that Jon is joining us at such a crucial point in our journey. He has all the skills and experience we need to move the organisation forward. Rica is determined to substantially expand its work as the consumer champion for older and disabled people, and Jon will help to ensure that we deliver this ambitious objective.”
Jon Quinn said: “I am tremendously excited and honoured to accept the role as Chief Executive at Rica. I look forward to working with the trustees and the team to take the organisation to the next level, growing the charity’s research and promoting its work to a greater number of older and disabled people.”
