Harry Musselwhite FKC16 Dec 2005, PR 112/05 The College Secretary and Head of Administration, Harry Musselwhite, will retire on 31 March 2006.
The College Council agreed at their meeting on 13 December that, in recognition of more than 35 years of distinguished service to the College and predecessor organisations, he be accorded the title of College Secretary Emeritus with effect from 1 April 2006.
The Council also approved Mr Musselwhite's appointment on a part time basis as a Vice-Principal of the College with ex officio membership of Council and as Director of Employee Relations. Mr Musselwhite will be known as College Secretary Emeritus and Director of Employee Relations. He will continue to report directly to the Principal and will focus on further developing partnership working in taking forward the College's considerable HR agenda.
The Principal, Professor Rick Trainor, commented: ‘I would like to thank Harry for his years of highly effective and very dedicated service to the College, to which he has made an enormous contribution. I look forward very much to working with him in a different but crucial role. The progress of administrative reform as envisaged in my Green Paper and initiated by Harry will continue as planned. As soon as possible we will be recruiting someone to head the administration after Harry's retirement.'Notes to editors King's College London
