Air Ambulance names new chief exec


Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust has appointed its new chief executive.

Tim Bunting, who currently works for BBC Children in Need, will take the reins from COO Steve Murdoch, who has been acting chief executive since Paula Martin departed the role in February.

Mark Carne, chair of the board of trustees, said: “We are delighted to welcome Tim to lead the vital lifesaving work of our charity. The missions are entirely paid for by the public and we believe that Tim’s experience and leadership will help us to keep flying and saving lives well into the future.”

Bunting added: “As someone who lives in Cornwall with my family, I know just how vital Cornwall Air Ambulance is to everyone who lives in or visits Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly. It will be an honour to lead this remarkable team and I am looking forward to getting started and meeting colleagues and supporters.”

Bunting will begin his new role later in the summer.
