Sabina Voysey has been appointed as the new Director General of The Camping and Caravanning Club.

She will become the first woman to hold the position when she takes over from Robert Louden MBE, who will retire after nearly 25 years at the Club of which 12 of them were as Director General.

Sabina joined the Club in 2002 as Finance Manager and was appointed Finance Director eight years later. Her role expanded in 2013 to incorporate responsibility for Human Resources, and in 2017 Sabina was appointed Deputy Director General.

The Club’s Chairman, Bob Talbot, said: “The Executive Committee is delighted to have appointed Sabina as our next Director General to build on Robert’s strong legacy of growth and development, which has seen membership grow threefold during his tenure. We wish Sabina every success in her new role.

Sabina is a Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants and gained her Master in Business Administration degree from Oxford Brookes University in 2012. Away from work she enjoys exploring the UK with her family and spending time with them in the outdoors, with country walking a popular pastime.

Sabina said: “I’m very proud and excited that I will be succeeding Robert as The Camping and Caravanning Club’s next Director General when he retires. I’m looking forward to working closely with our dedicated staff and voluntary officers as we embark upon the next exciting chapter in the Club’s long history.”

Over the coming months Robert, who was awarded an MBE for services to the Outdoor Recreation Industry in 2013, will work closely with Sabina to ensure there is a smooth transition before his retirement.
