Bradbury is chief executive at Nene Park Trust, a role he joined on 1 July last year, following a stint as director of operations at the Land Trust, and deputy director and head of nature reserves at the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.

He replaces The Parks Alliance (TPA’s) founding chair Mark Camley, who stepped down after more than three years at the helm of the organisation which acts as the voice for the parks sector.

Alistair Bayford, who started in the new role of sales and operations director - create and maintain, at his company idverde UK this week, continues as vice chairman. He said: "I'm very much looking forward as vice chair to working with Matthew Bradbury on TPA's further development."
