Most of you will have seen the announcement that Karina Luke will be taking over as Executive Director of BIC in April and will be joining us on 16 February. Karina has been a long-standing friend and supporter of BIC and we are delighted that she is coming on board. She brings with her from Penguin a familiarity with the digital landscape as well as a knowledge of conventional supply chain activity; and will be well placed to steer the tricky passage between the two.
It will be a big change for her and for BIC. I know that you will all wish her well and support her in maintaining and extending BIC’s crucial role in the supply chain.
