An Comunn Gàidhealach thanks departing CEO

Published: 22 Nov 2019

​An Comunn Gàidhealach wishes to announce that John Morrison, who has been the Chief Executive Officer for the last twelve years, is due to retire at the end of March 2020.

John Morrison said, “It has been a privilege to contribute to the promotion, and the development, of Gaelic through the Royal National Mod and the network of Provincial Mods over the years. I took up this role in 2008 and I have been extremely fortunate to work with such supportive people, including staff, Directors and Members of An Comunn Gàidhealach. I am certain that we have repositioned An Comunn Gàidhealach over the last decade, and we have also strengthened the structures that underpin the organisation. However, we have not yet managed to establish secure public funding support for the Royal National Mod, the main annual event in the Gaelic calendar, and that will be a challenge for my successor. I will offer every support to that person. ”

The President of An Comunn Gàidhealach Allan Campbell said, “ I, and the other Directors of An Comunn Gàidhealach, are indebted to John for his professional service over the past twelve years, at the helm of An Comunn Gàidhealach, and for all the commendable improvements he brought to the organisation over that period. Without a doubt, John is leaving the organisation in robust condition for the new Chief Executive. Working with John over the years has been a real pleasure for me, both as a Director and since 2017 as President. We wish John a long and happy retirement, when he eventually manages to leave!”

The post of Chief Executive of An Comunn Gàidhealach will now be advertised. For further information please contact: An Comunn Gàidhealach, 01463 709705.
