APCC appoints new Chief Executive

The new Chief Exec is expected to be in place later this year.

Phil Golding, 44, comes to the role with six years experience as head of the Law Commission. 

He has been in the Criminal Justice Sector since 1994, however, when he joined the then Lord Chancellor’s Department. Since then, he has progressed through the ranks via Ministerial Private Offices and various roles. 

Between 2008 and 2011, he served as Head of the Senior Presiding Judge’s officer before moving to HMCTS where he undertook a number of operational roles, including Head of Crime for the South West. 

Phil Golding said: “I am thrilled to be joining the APCC and to be able to play a role in strengthening the ability of PCCs and other policing bodies across the country to deliver safer communities for all.

“The organisation is pivotal in delivering modern and effective policing, driving down crime, protecting our population and providing the best possible services for victims.

“It is an honour to be chosen for this role and though there are challenges ahead I relish the opportunity to take them on.”

APCC Chair and Lincolnshire PCC, Marc Jones, said: “We are delighted that Phil will be leading the APCC. He was an outstanding candidate and will bring real knowledge and experience of the criminal justice system, as well as an impressive leadership record as an exceptional CEO at the Law Commission. 

“We were particularly struck by Phil’s strategic grasp and vision, as well as his track record of leading high performing and well-supported teams.”
