Dame Glenys Stacey DBE
HM Chief Inspector Probation
HM Inspectorate of Probation (HMIP)
Dame Glenys is an experienced regulator and chief executive. A solicitor by profession, she has twenty years CEO experience, having led the start up or turnaround of a number of public sector organisations responsible for legal and/or regulatory services. Dame Glenys was appointed as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Probation in March 2016. Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Probation exists to set standards and drive improvement in probation services, with the joint aims of reducing reoffending and protecting the public. In many ways this is a move ‘home’ for Dame Glenys, back into the world of criminal justice where she spent much of her career. In her previous role as Chief Regulator and CEO of Ofqual, Dame Glenys led the implementation of the government’s reform of qualifications in England. Ofqual regulates qualification providers and advises government on how best to deliver government’s policy aims for qualifications. It has a specific statutory duty to maintain standards and during her tenure, Dame Glenys led successful work to contain unjustified grade inflation in key qualifications. Dame Glenys holds an MBA and is a board member of the Association of Chief Executives.
