Change at the top of Skills for Logistics

Nov 19, 2013
Chief Executive Mick Jackson is stepping down from Skills for Logistics as the organisation looks to implement a new strategic plan that creates a greater emphasis on deeper commercial activities over the next five years.

Mick will be replaced by his deputy, Ross Moloney, whilst the Board review the appointment of a new Chief Executive.


Commenting on the change, Paul Brooks Chairman of Skills for Logistics stated: “Mick has been an outstanding servant for Skills for Logistics and a passionate champion for skills development in the logistics and wholesaling sectors of the UK. Mick has led our organisation through a period of substantive change in UK skills funding and over his five years in post has turned SfL into one of the top funded SSCs in the UK.  We wish him well in his future endeavours and thank him for the personal sacrifices he has made to keep our sector uppermost in the governments mind for skills investment. All of the team wish him well for his next career move.”


Mick Jackson commenting on the changes said: “The last five years in particular has been an incredible journey as we have transformed SfL from a poorly performing SSC to one of the best-funded. However in discussions with the Board I felt that 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."


“We have put in place a great team and I know in the short-term the organisation is in capable hands and I wish my colleagues the very best for the future.”
