QVM Chairman Comments On CEO Role

In response to a request from QVMAC Trader Representatives, Queen Victoria Market Chairman, Paul Guerra, has today sent us the following advice.

“As most of you would now know, Jan’s contract comes to a conclusion on October 30th.

During a time of uncertainty around the market renewal some two years ago, the Board made a decision to appoint Jan on a 2 year contract. Some of us will recall that the renewal project had not been approved at that point. We have moved significantly over the past 2 years, and are now in a phase of realizing the opportunity that the QVM renewal can deliver. The time is now right to return to the position of a long term CEO, and that’s what we will be recruiting for.

Jan has done a great job over the two years and set the market on the right pathway for an effective renewal. She has helped the market build excellent relationships with Staff, Traders, the City and other Stakeholders and we know they all join the Board in wishing her all the very best for the future.

The Board has started the process of looking for a new CEO and are working with Jan and key staff to confirm the best transitional arrangements while we find the CEO to take us through the renewal implementation. We anticipate having those arrangements in place in the next two weeks and will let you know as soon as they are finalised.

We look forward to celebrating with you the contribution Jan has made before she leaves at the end of the month.

Paul Guerra
