Age UK appoints new chief financial officer

Rajeev Arya joins Age UK in March as CFO, replacing the finance director role held by Steve Mensforth

AGE UK has appointed Rajeev Arya as its new chief financial officer.

Arya, who is due to start in March, will lead on financial strategy for all of the Age UK Group, including its financial services subsidiaries, raising social capital and developing its portfolio of commercial interests.

The CFO position is a new post for Age UK, replacing the finance director role held by Steve Mensforth on an interim basis following the departure of Charles Scott to join Action for Children in November last year.

Arya is currently CFO at Working Links, which is collectively owned by public, private and charitable stakeholders.

This is a vital role as the charity and social enterprise looks to build on its successful first three years following the merger of Age Concern and Help the Aged to form Age UK in 2009.

Tom Wright, Age UK’s group chief executive to whom Arya will report, said: “We are delighted to announce Rajeev’s appointment. He will be a real asset to Age UK, combining a wealth of experience and expertise in delivering social and commercial outcomes with a clear passion for our work.”

Age UK was created out of the merger of Age Concern and Help the Aged in 2009.
