AHF is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Kelcey Wilson-Lee as its new Head of Programmes and Impact. This new role within the AHF will lead on the oversight and management of the AHF’s UK grant programmes, including the development of our impact reporting. Kelcey will be joining the AHF from the University of Cambridge where she is currently a Senior Associate Director in the Development Team, with responsibility for regional philanthropy.

Kelcey has an academic background in medieval history and built heritage and has written a number of publications and books.  

Matthew Mckeague, AHF’s CEO, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Kelcey as our new (and first!) Head of Programmes and Impact. Kelcey’s strategic insight, fundraising and funder management experience and passion for historic buildings makes her ideally suited to this new role within the AHF.”

Kelcey said: “As a staunch advocate for the sustainable reuse of historic buildings and a keen listener for the stories that these spaces tell about our past, I am thrilled to be joining the team at AHF. The built heritage of the UK is a unique cultural and economic asset to be preserved and embraced for today, and tomorrow, and I feel immensely privileged to help play a part in this ongoing legacy.”

Kelcey will take up her new role on the 1st October.
