The British Geological Survey (BGS) has announced that its CEO John Ludden is to leave the organisation in September.
The BGS has said that Ludden leaves the organisation “very strong position, having recently led on the establishment of a new BGS Board and with a strong science leadership team, both internally and with a new Science Advisory Group of external experts”.
The BGS is one of the Natural Environment Research Council’s (NERC’s) research centres and NERC executive chair Duncan Wingham said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank John for his many years of hard work leading BGS. BGS is well positioned for the future, with a key role to play as a world leading survey. John has played a major role in all its developments, and will leave BGS greatly strengthened.”
No details have yet been released about who will take over Ludden’s role from September.
