Chief Executive steps down
Chairman of the Board of Charity Trustees for Keep Scotland Beautiful, Lindsay Montgomery CBE said: “In the last eight and a half years Derek has taken the charity through a period of change; engaged proactively with our partners, funders and key stakeholders; championed the role of the third sector; and brought new opportunities for engagement.
“We thank Derek for his positive contribution and wish him well for the future.”
“We are delighted that Tom Brock OBE, who has been a Charity Trustee with Keep Scotland Beautiful for over 10 years, will temporarily step down from the board and has agreed to act as Interim Chief Executive while we recruit a new lead to take the charity forward.”
Derek said: “After nearly nine years at Keep Scotland Beautiful, I regard this as the appropriate time for me to stand down and make way for a new leader to take the organisation on to the next level. There is no doubt that it has been a privilege to serve as its Chief Executive for so long. There are many more things that I would like to achieve professionally, and therefore I am looking forward to taking up a new opportunity in 2020, after a short break. Keep Scotland Beautiful is a great organisation that is built around fantastic people. I'd like to wish my successor and the organisation all the very best for the future."
