Times change… here’s what Brother David has to say:

“Being the Chief Executive Officer of the UGLE has been a singular privilege and honour, and I feel, with the completion and imminent launch of the new UGLE strategy for the next seven years, the time has come to hand on the mantle to someone new so that I can embark on new opportunities.

“The last four and a half years have seen an enormous rate of change within Freemasonry, and I am honoured to have been part of the journey. I have asked the President of the Board to allow me to step down as Chief Executive Officer and to begin the process for recruiting my successor to take the organisation forward into a new chapter of its history. Recognising my desire to move on to new and different challenges, he has kindly agreed. With leave of the Most Worshipful Grand Master, I will be continuing in my role as Grand Secretary until such time as a successor has been appointed in my stead, at which time, as is right and proper, I should expect to step down from office in his favour. I would like to thank you for your enormous hard work and support whilst in tenure and I wish you all, and the United Grand Lodge of England, the very best for the future.”

It was announced Monday in the First Rising newsletter.

He's had a meteoric rise to CEO in a fairly short masonic career and as a fairly young man (47) I would have thought he still had potential to perhaps Pro GM level. Finally he's only been CEO for 4.5 years which in GL terms is almost nothing..

However maybe he really did think he's taken it as far as he could..?

Educated guess would be something else in the offing with the changes at the very top ...
