Jo Revill to take up role of RCPCH chief executive officer in June 2018

As many of you will know, Professor Judith Ellis MBE is to retire on 31 May 2018 after nearly four successful years at the RCPCH. Judith will be succeeded by Jo Revill, who will join the College on Friday, 1 June 2018.

Judith and Jo will work closely together in the intervening months to ensure a smooth transition.

Jo has had an extensive career working for the Evening Standard and the Observer newspapers, as both health and political correspondent and then as adviser to Alan Johnson, when he was health secretary and home secretary.

Jo subsequently worked as strategic communications director at the Royal College of Surgeons before joining the British Society for Immunology, a membership body working with scientists and clinical researchers in immunology.

Jo is also the author of two books on allergies and bird flu.
