York Archaeological Trust Seeking to Uncover New Chair of Trustees

One of biggest archaeological organisations in the country is seeking a new Chair to help deliver the charity’s core aims on the national and international stage.

York Archaeological Trust, which employs over two hundred staff across archaeological offices in York, Glasgow, Nottingham and Sheffield as well as owning five city centre attractions in York, is looking to appoint a replacement within the coming weeks to take over from Chair Terence Suthers, who is stepping down.

Chief Executive of York Archaeological Trust, David Jennings says, “Terry has done a fantastic job and during his tenure he has made a huge difference to the Trust. He has implemented key objectives including: expanding the number of offices the Trust operates in from one to four; adding two new visitor attractions to the Trust; and campaigning for the re-imagining of the JORVIK Viking Centre following the flooding at Christmas 2015, which caused catastrophic damage.”

terry-suthers-chairmanTerry says, “Now the re-build of JORVIK Viking Centre is well underway, it is the right time to pass the reins to an ambitious Chair with an international vision who can drive the Trust forwards and expand its aim of delivering accessible archaeology for all. I have been proud of what the Trust has achieved during my time as Chair, especially with the difficult market conditions that have affected archaeological practices up and down the country. I wish the ambitious and talented team at the Trust all the best for the future.”
