The Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) has announced Sabina Voysey as their new Deputy Director General, with immediate effect.

The position is newly created within the Club, and Ms. Voysey will carry out the role in addition to her current responsibilities as the Club's Finance & HR Director, reporting to Director General, Robert Louden MBE.

According to the CCC, the creation of the role reflects the Club's rapid expansion in recent times: in the past 20 years membership has grown from 120,000 to 300,000 households and from an annual turnover of £10m to a group annual turnover of £60m.

The Club expanded its UK site network using franchising as a growth strategy, and partners with the Forestry Commission to operate Camping in the Forest, providing campsites on Forestry Commission land.

The Club has changed and evolved to support this considerable growth and the increasingly complex business requirements it brings, and the Deputy Director General role represents a key new position in the Club structure.

The new role will be an ongoing one, to support the Director General and the leadership of the Club.

Ms. Voysey joined the Club as Finance Manager in 2002, and was appointed Finance Director in 2010. Today, she runs a 25-strong finance and HR team, and has played an important role in ensuring sufficient cash is generated to fund ambitious, multi-million pound investments into the Club Site network, including campsite acquisitions in recent years.

Ms. Voysey said: "I'm excited to be appointed Deputy Director General, and look forward to supporting Robert in steering the Club to further growth and success over the coming years.

"I'm committed to ensuring that, while it's more important than ever that the Club is managed as a business, the spirit of the Club as a membership organisation, run by its members for its members, remains intact."

Robert Louden MBE said: "Sabina has been an integral part in helping the Club achieve the success it's enjoyed in recent years, and passed a rigorous appointment process. The Club's Executive Committee and I have great faith in her many abilities, and we look forward to her support in leading the Club to ever greater heights."
