UNICEF UK has appointed Freeview Managing Director Ilse Howling as the first female Chairman of its Board of Trustees.
Howling has served on UNICEF UK’s Board of Trustees since July 2009. Her appointment underlines the organisation’s leading status as one of only four UK charities with equal male and female representation on the board.
Howling was one of the founding team at Freeview and became its Managing Director in 2005. With a background in marketing and communications, Howling spent 12 years at the BBC, most recently leading its digital marketing function.
