Human Appeal's Chief Executive wins prestigious Fellowship Award
Human Appeal’s Chief Executive, Othman Moqbel, has won a fellowship at ACEVO, the UK’s largest and most influential network for charities.
ACEVO, which stands for the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations, aims to champion inspirational and emerging leaders from across the country through its Fellowships, identifying those who deserve greater recognition for their work and achievements locally, nationally and internationally. ACEVO’s panel of leadership experts considered various Chief Executives from across the country in the charity sector, but selected Moqbel for the Fellowship.
“A pantheon of inspiring leaders and their remarkable achievements have been brought to our attention and it was extremely difficult to come to a decision. Following intense discussions we unanimously agreed that Othman Moqbel stood out from other nominees,” ACEVO said.
Moqbel has been offered a 2015/16 Fellowship, which includes a bespoke leadership development plan. He has been Chief Executive of Human Appeal since 2010, during which time the charity’s income has grown from £3m annually to over £20m a year. Under Moqbel’s leadership, Human Appeal has become one of the fastest growing charities in the UK.
Moqbel’s unwavering passion for equality, justice and self-improvement has allowed him to gain an array of experience working with various organisations. He is a member of the Third Sector Leaders Euclid Network. He has also been a valued contributor to several inter-faith, international development and human rights conferences in countries like Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Russia, USA, Germany, Italy and France.
