IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE CHAIR
AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Board of Trustees has received a request from the Trust’s CEO, Mr Gerry Batty, to retire and leave the role of CEO. Gerry will continue with the Trust until 31 August 2019.
The Board would like to thank Gerry for his strong leadership since the Trust was formed and for giving longer than required notice to help the Board find a suitably qualified successor and to facilitate a smooth transition to a new CEO.
The Board will consider both internal and external candidates for the role, which will be advertised the week commencing 12 November 2018. Interviews will commence in January 2019 with a view to an appointment being made by the end of the month. It is hoped (subject to notice periods) that the new CEO will be able to take office soon after Easter and commence working alongside Gerry until the end of this academic year to ensure a smooth hand-over of responsibilities.
