Our team

Our people are our most valuable assets. We recognise that effective leadership is vital to enable our people to deliver the Corporate Strategy objectives, priorities and vision. Our Senior Executive Team, led by Chief Executive Victoria Hills, is responsible for the strategic direction of the RTPI.

Victoria reports to the Board of Trustees on all aspects of the Institute's activities, and is the link between volunteers and staff. The Chief Executive, Chief Operating Officer, Director of Communications, Director of Education and Profession, Chief Technology Officer, Director of Scotland and Ireland, Director of Wales and Northern Ireland make up the Senior Executive Team. Heads of Service, who report to the Executive Team, lead on other key aspects of the Institute's work.
