Greg Clarke standing down
After more than four years as our Chairman, Greg Clarke has stepped down.
We have seen some important changes while Greg has been Met Office Chairman – the biggest ever investment in our supercomputer, the establishment of our Business Group and the General Review, which quantified the huge social and economic benefits that the Met Office delivers.
Professor Sir John Beddington is acting as Chairman during the recruitment process to find Greg’s replacement. Greg has been appointed Chairman of the Football Association – a role which will take up a significant amount of his time. There are interesting parallels as Greg moves between two organisations that are both the subject of national conversation on an almost daily basis.
Greg said, “It has been a pleasure and a privilege Chairing the Met Office. It is a world class organisation, filled with excellent people doing vital work.”
