HR big-hitters from the public and private sector look set to join the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development as the body unveils its nominations for president and vice-president.
Gill Rider, head of civil service capability group and head of profession for civil service HR, has been nominated as the institute’s next president.
Alex Wilson, group HR director for BT, has been put forward for the post of vice-president, employee relations; and Stephen Dando, chief human resources officer for Thomson Reuters, has been nominated as the next vice-president, international.
The current vice-presidents Siobhan Cummins (international) and Tony McCarthy (employee relations) are retiring.
The election of all three roles – which are non-executive positions – is on the agenda for the CIPD AGM on 15 December.
Jackie Orme, CIPD chief executive, said: “Our efforts will be strengthened with these high calibre people on the team. Their decision to sign up is a boost to our work, and demonstrates the wealth of talent from within the profession that the CIPD is able to call upon.”
Vicky Wright, CIPD president, who will be succeeded by Gill Rider in December 2010 said: “I am particularly delighted to welcome Gill Rider as my successor as president.
“She brings substantial experience gained in both the public and private sectors, and also has valuable experience of leading a global HR function.”
