Oxfam GB today announced the appointment of Bob Humphreys as Finance and IS Director. Jane Cotton, HR Director said:
"I am happy to announce that Oxfam GB has a new Finance and IS Director, Bob Humphreys, who will take over from John Shaw when he retires from the organisation in the summer of this year.
Bob has been a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers since 1998 and has, for the last six years, focused increasingly on charity clients. In 2006 he was appointed leader of the UK firm's Charities Group and he is currently Joint Head of Charity Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He has lived and worked internationally for many years, particularly in Eastern Europe and and Japan.
Bob will be a great addition to both the Finance and IS functions during a period of economic difficulty and change, and to the Corporate Management Team. He will join us officially from the 1st September 2009 but will be working closely with Oxfam GB throughout the summer preparing for his new role."
