Simon Posner has stepped down as CPT’s Chief Executive. On his departure, Simon said: “Following a great deal of thought, I have decided that now is the right time for me to move on from CPT. In this rapidly changing world, all our members are facing new challenges and headwinds on an almost daily basis. It is vital that CPT continues to adapt to help our members meet these challenges. With this in mind, I believe that the organisation would benefit from a fresh face with fresh ideas leading it into the challenges ahead.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my career at CPT and been fortunate enough to work with some wonderful people, colleagues and members alike. I look forward to staying in touch with many of them as I move on to pastures new.”
After working for the DfT, including time in the Parliamentary Branch and the Minister of State’s Private Office, Simon moved to CPT. He initially joined the Communications Department, becoming Chief Executive in 2006.
CPT Chairman, Ian Morgan, said: “I am sure that all CPT members, colleagues and contacts through the industry and wider political landscape, wish Simon well in the future.”
