Oliver Morley

30 October 2013

Oliver Morley, our present Chief Executive and Keeper, has accepted a role as Chief Executive of the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) starting from 4 November 2013.

From 4 November Clem Brohier, The National Archives' Director of Finance and Corporate Services, will be Acting Chief Executive. The process of recruiting a new Chief Executive is now underway - the post has been advertised in the national press and the deadline for applications is 10:00 on Wednesday 13 November. You can find more details on the Ministry of Justice website.

Oliver has been Chief Executive and Keeper since March 2010, and over the past three and a half years has made a major contribution to the continuing success of the organisation.

Oliver said to staff, "While I'm greatly looking forward to the new opportunity with DVLA, it's been a privilege working with such a talented group of staff, our enthusiastic readers, and the people who make our archive sector so vibrant. I will miss The National Archives but will leave confident that our public task working for the record is greatly strengthened. I am very proud of all the organisation has achieved over the past three years - we have transformed the Kew site physically and environmentally, implemented a complete refresh of our world-class digital services, and delivered unprecedented transparency with the 20 year rule change to the Public Record , at the same time as delivering significant savings to the taxpayer."
