FCS Announcement

Chris Pateman has decided to step down from his role as Chief Executive Officer of the Federation on 30 November 2017. Between now and his leaving, Chris will be reducing his direct involvement in the federation but will take a lead role in the promotion and management of the Broadband Voucher Scheme and the joint Business Radio 2017 and VTI (Vehicle Technology Installer) event in November 2017.

The Board of Directors join me in thanking Chris for his service to the Federation since May 2012 and wish him well in his retirement.

Dave Dadds



At last:  a note from Chris Pateman that isn’t asking you to do anything, share anything or lobby anyone. 

This is simply, for your information, to circulate the official announcement on behalf of your Board that I shall be retiring from the business at the end of next month.  And to thank you, personally, for your input and your confidence over the last five and a half years. 

Best Regards,

Chris Pateman
