The Bletchley Park Trust has announced that Iain Standen will be taking over as chief executive of the landmark computing facility.
Standen will take over the role from departing chief executive Simon Greenish at the end of the month. A retired Army Colonel, Standen most recently served with the Corps of Signals.
"Over the years, I have followed the progress of Bletchley Park with enormous interest," Standen said.
"I am greatly looking forward to taking on the challenge of leading the Trust as it continues its programme of restoration and development as a world-class museum."
Standen takes over the position from Greenish, who will be resigning his post after six years with the Trust.
The resignation comes as Bletchley Park continues its efforts to rebuild and preserve its historic campus. Recently, the Trust secured a high-profile £550,000 donation from Google.
Under the reign of Greenish, the Trust has worked to raise funds and secure historical designations for the buildings, which once housed the allied forces' code-breaking and intelligence efforts during World War II. The site has also become host to the National Museum of Computing.
"I have had the privilege of meeting and receiving the support of some extraordinary people," Greenish said.
"I am pleased to be leaving Bletchley Park in such a greatly improved position compared with its previous situation."
