I am very pleased to be able to tell you that the Court has appointed Dr Maria 'Misha' Hebel as Clerk to the Company, in succession to Keith Lawrey. The Search Committee, comprised of the Upper, Middle and Lower Wardens, the Treasurer and myself, received 49 completed applications, agreed a longlist of 14 candidates and interviewed five. The process was managed by Liveryman Richard Evans, who generously gave of his time and expertise to ensure a thorough and rigorous selection process. We are most grateful to Richard.
Misha, who is a Liveryman of our own Company as well as of the Management Consultants, will be joining us as Clerk-Designate on 1 January and will take over fully from Keith on 1 April. During the interim there will be a phased handover of responsibilities. She is particularly well qualified, having a distinguished academic career, extensive management expertise, practical IT experience and a wide knowledge of the City.
I am sure we shall all welcome Misha to her new position and wish her every success in her vital role.
