Board agree plans for smooth transition


With CEO Greg Campbell leaving in May 2021, Ravensdown’s search for a replacement is well underway.  The Board has also asked their Chair, John Henderson, to stay on for up to a year to help the new CEO by providing continuity when they take the helm.   

John had been scheduled to retire from the Board this September having reached the maximum term of a shareholder-elected director. He will retire in that capacity, but intends to remain on the Board as the third appointed director as allowed under the co-operative’s constitution. This will enable John to continue as Chair for up to a year to provide stability before handing over to a new Chair.

“We start 2021 with strong shareholder support and in a solid financial position,” said John Henderson.  “The new CEO will join a thriving business that provides an essential service with an exciting future. With so much uncertainty in the world, the Board felt that transitioning a new CEO with an experienced Chair was the best approach for Ravensdown.  I look forward to working with the successful candidate, my fellow Board members and shareholders as the co-operative progresses through these important changes.”
