The new education secretary Nicky Morgan has appointed David Hoare as the new Ofsted chief.
Mr Hoare was appointed because of his previous 30 years of business experience.
The post became available in February, when chairman Baroness Morgan failed to agree upon a new contract with the ministers.
Hoare was formally a trustee of the large academy chain AET (The Academies Enterprise Trust). He was brought in to help with it’s difficulties.
The AET helps to run around 70 state-funded schools, however in March was told it was not allowed to take over any more.
The problem came about when Ofsted criticised some AET academies saying they failed standards.
Mr Hoare will take his new role at Ofsted this September.
