CIPP to bid farewell to Elaine Gibson

06 February 2019

Elaine Gibson MSc ChFCIPPdip, education director, will be leaving the CIPP on 31 March 2019. Elaine leaves the CIPP after 15 years’ service with the CIPP, but will remain actively involved at the CIPP as a tutor on the education programmes offered from level five to level seven. 

Elaine leaves the CIPP to join the team at Dataplan Payroll Limited as director of people and quality.

As a result of Elaine’s forthcoming move, the CIPP has taken the opportunity to promote from within the business with Dr Sue Smith EdD, MA, Bed, FHEA, FCMI, CMgr, Assoc CIPD taking up the role of education director and Vickie Graham DipM ACIM taking on the new position of business development director.

Speaking on Elaine’s departure and the changes, Ken Pullar FCIPP, CEO, commented: “We congratulate Elaine and wish her the best for her new role at Dataplan. The CIPP is in a stronger place through Elaine’s stewardship in her education director role over the last two years. Elaine will continue to be involved with the CIPP as Chartered Member and Tutor.”

Ken continues: “I am delighted that we have been able to promote from within the business and congratulate Sue and Vickie on their new positions.  They will have a challenging act to follow after Elaine’s departure but I am sure Sue and Vickie will carry out their roles to the professional levels we all aspire to within the CIPP and I’m sure you will join me in congratulating them on their roles.”
