Save the Children International will have a new board chair later this year and CEO by the start of 2016.

Jasmine Whitbread, the incumbent and first international CEO, announced her resignation in early July. She said her decision was not an easy one but she felt “this is the right time — both for Save the Children to have a new leader and for me to find my next challenge.”

Sir Alan Parker, meanwhile, is the next chairman of the international board. He is currently the chairman of Save the Children U.K. and will be succeeded to the post by Peter Bennett-Jones, a founding trustee of U.K. charity Comic Relief, in September.

Below are other major appointments in July across the international development community.
