EARNSHAW TO DEPART ST HELENA
Tony Earnshaw, Director of
the Environment and Natural Resources Directorate (ENRD), is to leave St
Helena, departing on Sunday 26 May 2013. Tony is returning to the UK for vital
and personal family reasons. He has therefore resigned from SHG, with effect
from the end of May.
Acting Governor Owen O’Sullivan
‘Tony has had a big impact
in the short time he has been Director of ENRD and he will be sorely missed.
‘I totally understand his
personal, family reasons for leaving St Helena, and we all wish him well in the
‘I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my
time living and working on St Helena both as Lands Executive and Director of
ENRD. There’s never an ideal time to leave and I had to give it serious thought
before taking this difficult decision. However, now that the initial pieces of
the re-organisation jigsaw have been put in place and we have a clear plan for
completing it on time, I am confident that there will be a smooth transition
into the new ENRD management arrangements.
‘At the end of the day, my
family has to come first and that’s why I’m returning to the UK.’
SHG is putting in place interim
management arrangements for ENRD. We are in the process of recruiting an
interim Director who will be in place before Tony leaves, giving SHG a handover
period to ensure that there is minimum disruption to Government business. The
advert for the substantive Director post will be placed early next week.
