Ros Kerslake joined the Heritage Lottery Fund as Chief Executive in July 2016, from The Prince's Regeneration Trust where she was also CEO.

 Ros trained as a solicitor and started her career in legal roles before taking on wider leadership positions in the private sector, including for Gulf Oil and Booker Group. As Property Director of Railtrack, she developed an interest in the issues around place and urban regeneration which have characterised her roles since. Ros went on to lead RegenCo - an urban regeneration company in the West Midlands - where she was the first CEO.

 Among her achievements at The Prince's Regeneration Trust, Ros led the team that saved one of the last working Victorian potteries in the UK, Middleport Pottery, bringing new life and business to the restored site.
