I’m honoured to be joining an organisation that has been doing just that for longer than almost any other,’ she said.
Camilla Toulmin, chair of tve’s board of trustees, said: ‘We are thrilled to welcome Nicole as tve’s third Executive Director. The challenges facing our planet have only grown in the 35 years since tve was founded, making our mission even more important.
