The 157 Group colleges association has announced plans to appoint Ian Pretty as chief executive later this year.

He will replace Lynne Sedgmore, who is retiring as executive director of the group.

Sarah Robinson, chair of the 157 Group and principal of Stoke on Trent College, said: “I am delighted that Ian has decided to join the 157 Group. Having held a number of senior positions in both central government and the commercial sector, he brings a wide range of skills and experience to the group as we continue our influential work to raise the profile and importance of further education and skills.”
