TEC national council chairman Garry Johnson has announced his intention to stand down at the end of the year.

'I have been proud to be associated with TECs during a period in which, whilst retaining and strenghtening our strong local routes, we have developed into a cohesive and significant national movement,' says Sir Garry.

'I believe the time is now right for a new chairman to build on this achievement, backed by new strategic guidance, in which government will confirm the role and functions of TECs/CCTEs for the forseeable future.'

Johnson was appointed chairman for a three-year term. This has now come to an end. During this time he has overseen a review of its policy committees and structures.

Commenting on the move, Tony Rink, chairman of the council's finance and general purposes committee, said: 'Sir Garry has provided excellent leadership for the TEC movement through a time of enormous challenge and change. He has made a significant contribution to the work of the council during his three year tenure and we are grateful to him.'

The search now begins for a successor to Johnson. The process will be one of open recruitment and the council will be seeking a business person of standing, with experience and knowledge of TECs. Sir Garry will continue to serve as chairman until a successor is in place.

TEC National Council recently appointed a new chief executive. Jacqui Henderson takes up the post today.
