Neville Nagler steps down

Last updated: 2004-05-05

The Board of Deputies has announced with regret that its Director General, Neville Nagler, has indicated his wish to take early retirement from the Board later in the year.

Neville Nagler was appointed as Chief Executive of the Board in 1991 after a successful career in the Treasury and Home Office. By mutual arrangement, he has decided to retire as the full-time Director General later in the year. The Board will now start the search for a successor, but Mr Nagler has agreed to stay in post until a new Director General is appointed. The Board’s Executive Committee has invited Mr Nagler to continue to serve the Board on interfaith matters, thereby making use of his unique experience in this particular field.

Board President Henry Grunwald QC commented: “Neville Nagler has served the Board and the community with great distinction during a particularly challenging period. We are very sorry that he has decided to step down, but fully understand his reasons for doing so. We are delighted that Neville’s expertise in interfaith matters will continue to be available to the community, and that he will be working for the Three Faiths Forum and its affiliates on a part-time basis.”

Neville Nagler commented: “It has been a great honour to serve the Board, and through the Board the entire community, for these past thirteen years. The Board has made enormous advances over this period, but the time has come for me to move on to fresh challenges and for a successor to take over the reins of this impressive organisation. I look forward to continuing to serve the community in interfaith work, and in any other areas where I can be of help.”
