New Director of Strategy for BBC World Service Trust appointed

Julia Moffett has been appointed Director of Strategy, BBC World Service Trust, a new position to help direct the future work and growth of the trust.
The trust is the BBC's charity which mobilises media to aid development.
It currently works in more than 25 countries around the world, providing media assistance and promoting the innovative use of media in advancing education and health development and reducing poverty.
In her new role as part of the trust's senior management, Moffett will work closely with the Trust Director and programme heads to identify key partnerships and strategies to grow and enhance current programmatic activities.
In addition, she will have responsibility for leading the development of new opportunities for the trust's work as well as funding and strategic partnerships.
World Service Trust Director Stephen King said: "Julia Moffett will be a valuable asset to the next phase of the trust's work.
"Her strategy and communications experience, combined with her work for leading organisations in media, government and philanthropy, gives her a unique platform to help and develop our work."
Moffett brings to the Trust a strong record of using communications for the public interest and of charting strategies to help organisations working in these fields to achieve their full potential.
She was formerly Managing Director and Chief Strategic Officer of the Markle Foundation in New York, a private philanthropy that works to realise the potential of information and communications technologies to improve people's lives.
