MANAGEMENT ON THE MOVE

MILITARY

23 Apr 03. The U.K. MoD announced that General Sir Michael Walker was to take over as CDS, from Admiral Sir Michael Boyce, on 2 May 03. An up-dated list of Defence Council members is at page 3, which also reflects the change of the Chief of Defence Procurement (CDP) on 1 May 03. Comment: General Walker’s selection as CDS designate was announced on 23 Jul 02, without any satisfactory explanation as to why Admiral Boyce was retiring after only 27 months in the appointment. The suggestion that Admiral Boyce was leaving because he had reached his 60th birthday (2 Apr 03) is nonsense: his predecessor, General Guthrie, was extended in post for two months short of four years and was well past 62 when he handed over.
