Following an extensive search, I am absolutely delighted and very pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Williams as the next County Commissioner for GLMW to succeed myself with effect from 2nd April 2017. Richard is known to most people and has led the programme team for the past 18 months as part of the county review and prior to that led Explorer Scouting. Richard is also our leader for the forthcoming county Expedition to Kandersteg and a member of the training team. From the extensive number of nominations, I know Richard will have your full support as he leads Middlesex West forward, and continue the strategy and vision we have all been part of. I had purposefully left several roles vacant in the county team knowing that changes were pending and now Richard has the opportunity to shape the future team based on the current county needs. Richard and I will commence the handover process in April, and I will be supporting him as both his line manager and friend. I'm sure you will all join me in wishing Richard well for the future as your County Commissioner.
Terry Kingham, Regional Commissioner
