MMO Board Member Appointments

12 September 2012

UK - MMO Board members are appointed by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for a fixed period of either three or four years, and four MMO Board members complete their terms at the end of January 2013.

At that time Rodney Anderson and Richard Birmingham will leave the MMO board and pursue their other professional, business, and charitable interests.

The MMO would like to say a very sincere thank you to Rodney and Richard for the service they have given to the MMO, shaping the organisation in its early days and leaving the MMO with solid foundations for the future. Both Rodney and Richard will continue as Board members until January 2013.

As a result of these changes an appointments process for two new MMO Board members has now began and application packs are available on the Cabinet Office's Public Appointments website at

The closing date for applications is 2 October 2012.
