Ilex Chair to step down

13th September 2011

Ilex URC today announced that the Chair of its Board, Sir Roy McNulty, intends to step down from that post in the first quarter of 2012.

Sir Roy said:

“It has been a privilege and a pleasure for me to serve as Chair of Ilex since 2007, but I will be 75 next year and the time has come when I need to reduce my workload substantially.

I have appreciated the help and support which I have received from many people and organisations during the past four years. The regeneration effort in Derry~Londonderry has begun to make real progress in that time and the City has major opportunities for the future. I have no doubt that a new Chair can provide the sustained focus on implementation which will be required for lasting success”.
