Jan Cochrane-Harry has advised QVMAC Trader representatives that she will be stepping down as CEO on 30th October 2015. That will mark the completion of her two year contract at QVM.
Jan came to our market during a time of immense upheaval and has been involved in the formulation of many important market components including things like the 1-2-1 Trader Meetings, the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal Strategic Brief, and ultimately the Master Plan for QVM.
It has been suggested that the time is right for a new CEO to take on the implementation phase of a long renewal. There may be merit in that suggestion however amongst a range of executive talents Jan has shown a remarkable capacity for impartiality and inclusiveness. In the difficult times ahead, traders will need all those qualities to be ongoing.
