Following a remarkable career of leadership in England’s historic environment sector, Peter Hinton – former CEO of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists – has retired.

The Historic Environment Forum (HEF) Chair, Dr Adrian Olivier, paid tribute:

“Pete Hinton has been a valued, steadfast, and very active supporter of HEF since its inception.

His always wise counsel – informed by a deep experience and knowledge of the sector – has made a major contribution to the thinking of HEF and to its work over the years. In particular I have especially appreciated Pete’s effortless ability to apply his wide perspective to challenging current assumptions – but always in the friendliest, most supportive, and completely positive way.

Pete’s retirement leaves a large and empty space at the HEF table that will be difficult to fill – but I am confident that – in one way or another – he will continue to be active in the heritage milieu, so that we will all continue to benefit from his accumulated experience and wisdom.”

We extend our thanks to Pete for his invaluable support over the years and wish him all the very best for his retirement.
