Susie Hargreaves, the Chief Executive of the Internet Watch Foundation, has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, for her work in online child protection.
Sir Richard Tilt, IWF Chair, said:
As Chair of the Internet Watch Foundation I am absolutely delighted to hear of the award of the OBE to our Chief Executive, Susie Hargreaves. Susie has been CEO for almost five years and has developed the organisation to the point where it is one of the leading hotlines in the world, recognised as a centre of excellence internationally. She has brought tremendous commitment to the vital job of removing child sexual abuse material from the internet as quickly as possible and has built a team of staff dedicated to making the internet a safer place.
LINX is proud to be a founding member of the IWF, and we would like to add our congratulations to Susie for this well-deserved honour.
