In-house moves:

The Royal Academy has appointed a new general counsel, after its former GC Susan Gent left the company in October last year. Ben Anstey has now taken up the role, leaving his previous post at mental health charity Samaritans where he had been GC and company secretary since 2016. Previous to that, Anstey worked in senior in-house roles at Amnesty International. He trained in law at K&L Gates between 2007 and 2010. Gent has yet to announce a new post.
