The Terrence Higgins Trust, the largest provider of HIV and sexual health services in the UK’s voluntary sector, has fired its chief executive.
A statement by the charity’s board of trustees said Dr Rosemary Gillespie, who had only been in her post for 15 months, had been asked to step down with immediate effect. It said a change of leadership was required.
Gillespie succeeded Sir Nick Partridge, who held the position for 20 years. The chairman of the board Robert Glick said it had been a “privilege to work with Rosemary”, who had been “the driving force behind a new strategy for THT”.
