Mick Jackson, chief executive of Skills for Logistics (SfL), has been replaced with immediate effect by his former deputy Ross Moloney as the board searches for a replacement.
Jackson said of his depature: "I felt 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.”
SfL chairman Paul Brooks said Jackson had been “a passionate champion for skills development”.
A spokesman for SfL said he could not comment further on whether Jackson’s departure was a direct result of the introduction of the new five-year plan, which the organisation has said will involve “a greater emphasis on deeper commercial activities”.
