CIPD President Set to Stand Down


Geoff Armstrong plans to retire as director general of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) next spring.

Armstrong will step dowin in June 2008, a date that will mark 16 years in the role.

He said: "It has been a great honour to lead the CIPD since 1992. But the time has come to begin the search for my successor. We have a strong management team in place, and an effective Board and governance structure. I will continue to work alongside them to achieve our strategic objectives and to hand over to my successor.”

The search for a new Director General is now set to start, led by CIPD president Vicky Wright.

She said: "I and the Board will be working to identify a suitable successor, equipped to offer the same innovation, vision and dynamism as Geoff has brought to the role."
