The Commission for Architecture & the Built Enviroment (CABE) has named Paul Finch, former editor of NCE’s sister magazine the Architects Journal, as its new chair.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) confirmed Finch’s appointment this week. He will take the post for four years, starting on 14 December 2009.
“I’m sure John will continue to be a passionate and persuasive advocate for great design.”
Ben Bradshaw, Culture Secretary
Culture Secretary Ben Bradshaw said: “I’d like to congratulate Paul Finch who brings a wealth of experience and a formidable understanding of the world of architecture and the built environment to the role. I look forward to working with him.
“I would also like to thank the outgoing chair Sir John Sorrell under whose assured leadership CABE has gone from strength to strength.
“I’m sure John will continue to be a passionate and persuasive advocate for great design through his many other interests,” he said.
