From WWF to Campaign for Better Transport

Campaign for Better Transport has appointed Darren Shirley as its new CEO.

Darren previously led Which?’s campaigns in regulated and retail markets, and comes to the advocacy group with more than 10 years’ experience in the environmental sector having working for WWF, Greenpeace UK and National Energy Action.

He said that, “given the current crisis in public transport, and appalling levels of air pollution”, delivering sustainable transport has never been more important.

Darren added: “The next few years will be key to creating a better transport system that works for communities, protects the environment, and improves quality of life.

Darren joined Campaign for Better Transport on August 8. He replaced Stephen Joseph, who stepped down after 30 years in this role.
