ICF Appoints Deputy Director

The Institute of Chartered Foresters is pleased to announce the appointment of Russell Horsey as its Deputy Director, based in Little Wittenham, Oxfordshire.

Russell has spent a good deal of his career working in urban forestry for local authorities in the south of England, most recently with Bristol City Council where he has done much to ensure the benefits of trees within the city are recognised. Russell is a graduate of the Universities of Brighton, UK, and Toronto, Canada, gaining a Masters in Forestry Conservation in the latter.

Accepting the post Russell said: “I am excited to be joining the ICF at such an important time for forestry and arboriculture. I look forward to working with ICF members to champion the good work they are doing, promote best practice across the industry and to raise the profile of the ICF even further.”

This is a new post for the Institute and one which we hope will highlight the importance of professionalism in our growing sector, as well as raising our profile with key decision makers and improving services to members. Russell starts his new post on 1st October 2012.
