Tony Mullee, who became CE and Clerk for a one year interim period and stayed six years, retired on the 31st March. At a lunch celebration attended by staff and Governors of Sir John Cass’s Foundation, Tony was presented with a unique gift, a leather bound version of the Foundation’s history.

Actually it was a double retirement. Tony’s wife, Jane, had stepped in to cover maternity leave as the Interim Finance Manager.

Whist it was a celebration, it was tinged with sadness. Tony has proved to be a truly gifted and professional leader and an inspiration to the staff.

In his thank you remarks, Treasurer Kevin Everett spoke of Tony’s dedication and commitment, thanked him for playing a pivotal role in the Foundation’s history, and said that Tony has made a real difference to the way the Foundation is set up to tackle the challenges and the opportunities for the future.

Richard Foley becomes Clerk today and we wish him a happy and successful future at the Foundation.
