About the Legion
20 November 2012
Following changes to the management structure of the National Memorial Arboretum, Sarah Montgomery has been appointed managing director.
The appointment is on a fixed term contract, pending a formal recruitment process, and comes ahead of the start of building work in 2013 which will lead to the creation of a world-class Centre for Remembrance at the Staffordshire site.
The new management structure, which sees a number of roles created or transformed, reflects the ambitious development plans of the charity, which is part of The Royal British Legion family.
Sarah is a senior manager with over 18 years' commercial and not-for-profit experience in the tourism and heritage sectors. In previous roles as general manager of both Chatsworth House Trust and Warwick Castle, Sarah was involved in the sensitive management and restoration of these nationally-important buildings, grounds and gardens while creating outstanding days out and events for visitors.
The recruitment process for a permanent managing director will commence shortly.
