Adele was selected to lead the executive team at DBS, following a rigorous recruitment process.

DBS Chairman, Bill Griffiths, said:

Adele demonstrated exceedingly strong leadership skills, with vast experience in coaching, developing and inspiring teams through complex business transformation.

A first-class communicator, with experience of leading high performing corporate functions - and a clear commitment to safeguarding - shes proven her ability to build the right level of relationships with internal and external stakeholders. In addition, with her high level of political acuity, Im confident Adele will make a very positive contribution to the public safety agenda.

It is an absolute privilege to be stepping up to the position of Chief Executive to lead such an extraordinary team with an important job to do.

The services DBS provides have never been so important and I fully intend to make sure we add value to safeguarding as a public body. I relish this opportunity and am delighted to have been selected to take DBS forward and lead the organisation in this next exciting chapter.
