After 15 months Michael King, Consultant at Stone King LLP, is stepping down as Interim Manager of Muslim Aid. He was appointed by the Charity Commission on 17 October 2016 to the exclusion of the then trustees. Now a new board of trustees with a wide range of skills and experience is in place and ready to assume management of this faith-based charity, which is now re-established as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).
The new board which has seven members is chaired by independent management consultant Iftikhar Awan and Sara Pantuliano, Managing Director of the Overseas Development Institute, has been appointed Vice-Chair. The charity’s Chief Executive Officer Jehangir Malik OBE has been in place since September 2016.
Michael King says: “This important faith-based charity is now fully equipped to continue its work throughout the world under the leadership of its much-admired CEO and a very competent senior leadership team. I am delighted to be handing over ultimate responsibility for Muslim Aid to such a diverse board of trustees, carefully chosen for their skills and experience, under whose guidance I’m sure it will flourish.”
