In an announcement, Professor Verma said, “David has nurtured an environment of professionalism and specialisation within the College office, bringing us experts with the specific skills and attributes we need for the future. He will be leaving us a much stronger and resilient organisation than when he started.
“On behalf of the members, the Board wishes David every success for the next stage of his career and thank him for his service,” said Prof Verma.
