Jisc chief executive to step down

The chief executive of the UK’s higher education ICT organisation Jisc has said he will step down from the role in the autumn.

Since becoming chief executive in 2012, Martyn Harrow has overseen a change of Jisc’s funding model. Instead of relying on public funding and a charge for the Janet network, institutions now subscribe to the organisation’s services.

In an email to Research Fortnight Harrow said, "The work I came to Jisc to lead on, and make happen, is essentially done and so it is a propitious moment to seek my successor as chief executive: someone who can build on the huge transformation that has taken place and continue to hone the incredible asset of Jisc for UK education and research.”
