After five years it's been reported that John Cridland is to step down as director general of the CBI.
Cridland has spent his entire career at the CBI – the lobby group for British business – having joined straight from University in 1982.
Serving as deputy director general between 2000 and 2010, he then served as director general for five years.
A CBI spokesman reportedly commented: “This year marks the CBI’s 50th anniversary and, with the election looming, John remains focused on ensuring the new government delivers pro-enterprise policies and championing British business at home and abroad.”
According to the BBC, headhunters Odgers have been appointed to look for his successor.
