Oliver Morley appointed to head TNA

As seems to have been anticipated, the official announcement has been made that Oliver Morley, who has been acting as head of The (UK) National Archives for a year, has now been appointed permanently to the role, the official title being Chief Executive and Keeper of The National Archives.

Prior to assuming the acting role he had been TNA's Director, Customer and Business Development. He first joined the organization in 2008 prior to which he had been with Thomson Reuters.

Oliver Morley has a youthful appearance, one veteran genealogist while commenting favourably on his period as acting head, mused that he looked as if he should still be in short trousers.
