Tom Britten has taken up his role as Chief Operating Officer for The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), a critical role in helping to shape and deliver corporate functions from estates management to health and safety, as well as providing input into HR and finance.

He joins STFC from the University of Bath where he led the development of its business relationships as the Commercial Director and was previously Director of Commercial Services at the University of Warwick.

STFC Executive Chair, Professor Mark Thomson said: “We had a really strong field of candidates, with over 100 applicants, but Tom stood head and shoulders above the rest. He will be instrumental in helping to deliver our strategy and forging closer links with the corporate centre. I look forward to his addition to my already excellent executive team.

Tom commented: “I’m thrilled to be joining STFC as Chief Operating Officer and am looking forward to meeting new colleagues. It’s a fantastic organisation with exciting growth plans. In the months ahead, I’ll be focused on listening and learning about the opportunities and challenges.

As a member of STFC’s Executive Team he will share corporate accountability for the delivery of STFC’s Vision and Strategic Delivery Plan, and oversee development of future strategy, policy and plans to deliver STFC’s objectives.
