Katriona Carmichael appointed as OSCR's new Chief Executive

01 Jul 2024

The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) is delighted to announce Katriona Carmichael has taken up her appointment as the organisation’s new Chief Executive.

The appointment comes after CEO Maureen Mallon announced her retirement from the role earlier this year, and a recruitment process was carried out to find her successor. Following a transitional handover period at the end of June, Katriona Carmichael officially starts her role as Chief Executive today, Monday 1 July 2024.

Katriona joins OSCR from the Environment & Forestry Directorate of the Scottish Government, where she was the Deputy Director for Circular Economy. She brings with her significant experience in leadership roles and a clear understanding of the positive impact of regulation done well.

Katriona said: “I am delighted to be taking on the role of CEO at OSCR and would like to wish Maureen well in her retirement. I am looking forward to working with the Board and OSCR staff to lead the organisation through the next exciting phase, including the delivery of the measures set out in the Charities Act 2023 and the commitment in our Corporate Strategy to build trust and confidence in Scottish charities.”
