Change at the top at the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture

Wed, 01 Dec 2021

Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture Chief Executive Officer Richard Lole is leaving his role after 10 years to become Director of Climate Change Transformation in the Cabinet Office.

He has worked with the Climate Change team in recent years alongside his DEFA role and the move reflects the priority shown towards addressing environmental issues in the new Island Plan, which commits to accelerating the delivery of the Climate Change Route Map.

He will be succeeded at DEFA by Andrew Sidebottom, who will take on the role of Interim CEO from Monday 6 December for a period of three months.
