Our current Chief Executive, Penelope Cooper, will start her six-month secondment as Director of Outbreak Management within the core Scottish Government on Tuesday 17 November.

Our current Head of Business Management, Matt Valente, will take over as Interim Chief Executive of the SPPA on the same day.

This will not result in any immediate changes to our priorities, structure or ways of working. With Matt having been at the fulcrum of activity for so long, this has led to a seamless transition of accountabilities.
