ILC-UK have announced that after seven years, Noreen Siba, Managing Director of the International Longevity Centre–UK (ILC-UK) is to retire in early June 2014.

Noreen’s time at ILC-UK has seen the organisation achieve so much and strengthen its offering as the leading think-tank on demographic change.

Our new internal restructure will be announced soon.

Baroness Greengross said:

“It is with great sadness that I must confirm that Noreen Siba will be retiring as Managing Director of the ILC-UK from June 2014.

Noreen has been a fantastic Managing Director of the organisation and has been responsible for seeing its growth and development over the last seven years.

I would like to thank Noreen for her loyalty and support to the ILC-UK and we wish her all the best in the future.

Our Chair, Martin Green, and I have been working together to develop a succession plan which is resulting in an exciting new internal restructure.

We are very confident about the future of ILC-UK. The challenges of an ageing society are not going to go away. ILC-UK has a key role to play in ensuring that Government maximises the opportunities and responds to the challenges.”

Noreen Siba added:

“I leave the ILC-UK in excellent hands and wish all the very best going forward to the team, trustees, advisors, partners and all our colleagues and supporters.

Managing the ILC-UK has been the most amazing challenge and of course I will miss all of this but I also have new aspirations for my forthcoming ‘retirement’.

Thanks to all of you who have given me so much encouragement, advice and support over the years, which I have greatly appreciated."
