Rebecca Eaves is appointed as CLPE's new Chief Executive

CLPE is delighted to welcome Rebecca Eaves as the new CEO. This follows the departure in August of Louise Johns-Shepherd.

Rebecca brings 25 years’ experience in advertising, marketing and publishing at The Guardian and Bauer Media and most recently at Advertising Week, managing high-profile businesses and brands as well as volunteer experience in the education sector as co-chair of the governing board of a London primary school. 

Rebecca says: “As a governor and parent, I’ve experienced first-hand how CLPE’s teaching and resources can instil a love of reading and storytelling amongst even the most reluctant of children. I have big shoes to fill, but can’t wait to build on the brilliant work of this important charity, alongside the formidable CLPE team and Trustees, to broaden the reach and influence of this literacy treasure."
