Change at the top for skills body

[ September 25, 2013   //   ]

Skills for Logistics chief executive Mick Jackson is stepping down from Skills for Logistics and will be replaced by his deputy, Ross Moloney, whilst the boards for a permanent successor. It is part of the sector council’s plan to become a more commercial organisation over the next five years.

SfL chairman Paul Brooks said Mr Jackson had been “an outstanding servant for Skills for Logistics  and a passionate champion for skills development in the Logistics and wholesaling sectors of the UK. Mick has led our organisation through a period of substantive change in UK skills funding and over his five years in post has turned SfL into one of the top funded SSCs in the UK.”

Jackson added: “The last five years in particular has been an incredible journey as we have transformed SfL from a poorly performing SSC to one of the best-funded. However in discussions with the board I felt that there was a need for someone to be able to commit strongly to the new strategy for the next five years and I didn’t feel that was appropriate for me.”
