Holmes appointed as Baaf’s new chief executive

David Holmes, deputy director of children’s services in the London borough of Haringey, has been appointed as the new chief executive of Baaf Adoption and Fostering.

A solicitor by profession and former manager of the government’s child protection, adoption and looked-after children teams, Holmes will replace current chief Felicity Collier in May.

Holmes said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as Baaf’s new chief executive at a time of great change and new opportunities within children’s services.”

Collier, who is to retire after 10 years at the helm of Baaf, said:  “While I am sad to leave BAAF after so many years, I am personally thrilled about David’s appointment – he was my key contact at the Department for Education and Skills for three years and is very well-respected in the child care sector.”
