Our team

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

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, Director of Commercial and Corporate Services and Director of Professional Standards and Development make up the Executive Team - the senior management team. The Heads of Service and National Directors, who report to the Executive Team, are responsible for different aspects of the Institute's work.
