London Plus welcomes Rob Bell as Interim Chief Executive


From 01 July 2024, Rob Bell will be joining London Plus as our Interim Chief Executive.

An established charity leader, Rob brings his experience as Interim Director at the VCS Emergencies Partnership to the role, as well as his extensive knowledge of the London charity landscape.

Up until Summer 2023, Rob was joint CEO of the Bettys & Taylors Group, with lead responsibility for Organisational Development, People and Culture. Before that he was Director of The Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts in London, CEO of London Emergencies Trust at the time of the Grenfell fire and 2017 terror attacks, and has held senior positions at grant-making trusts including the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust.

Rob says, ‘I’m really looking forward to working with the team and trustees at London Plus, supporting them as they begin the search for a permanent successor to Martin Brookes. It’s a great organisation, whose collaborative approach and strong partnerships have never been more needed.’

We are delighted that Rob will be joining London Plus, as we continue our vital work supporting charities and community groups in London.
