FSA Board members step down
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has announced the resignation of two of its board members, Clive Grundy and Sharmila Nebhrajani.
Announcing the resignations at the Agency’s open board meeting yesterday (13 November) FSA Board chair Jeff Rooker said that Grundy, who has served the board since 2008, was stepping down due to “ill health”.
“He has been a tremendous asset to the Agency during these five years and the board has particularly appreciated and enjoyed his thoughtful, precise and considered contributions during our meetings,” said Rooker.
“During his term of office Clive has served on the Audit and Succession Committee, the Development Committee and also as a member of the Meat Hygiene Service Board until it merged with the FSA in April 2010. We will miss his wise counsel.”
He added that Nebhrajani had stepped down because professional commitments meant she was unable to “commit the time to the board that she had hoped”.
Both resignations are effective immediately, and a campaign to recruit new board members will be held in the New Year.
