SFC appoints Interim Chief Executive


16 Jun 2016

Dr John Kemp will take on the role of Interim Chief Executive of the Scottish Funding Council from the beginning of August.

The appointment follows Laurence Howell’s decision announced earlier this year to retire as Chief Executive.

John has been with the Scottish Funding Council for sixteen years and has held a number of positions in the organisation. In his current role as Director of Access, Skills and Outcome Agreements John has worked extremely closely with both colleges and universities. He has also represented the Scottish Funding Council at a senior level in its relations with the Scottish Government, representative bodies and many of its key partners.

John’s appointment will be for a period of six months from August 2016 until January 2017.
