States chief executive set to step down
Tuesday 16th July 2013, 3:00PM BST.
STATES chief executive Mike Brown has announced his retirement date.
The announcement was made to States employees yesterday.
‘I now consider that the time is right to prepare the groundwork for my successor to eventually step into my role,’ said Mr Brown, pictured.
‘It is for this reason that I make this relatively early announcement of my intention to leave the employment of the States of Guernsey in April next year, as I do not want any unfounded speculation to distract from the appointment of my successor and the further work required to continue the progress that has been made.’
Mr Brown joined the States in 1978 as a chartered accountant. Before becoming chief executive in 1993, he served as deputy treasurer and treasurer.
