CPIT CEO announces retirement

CPIT CEO announces retirement

Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology CEO John Scott yesterday informed CPIT Staff and Council that he will be retiring from his position at the end of April 2006.

Mr Scott’s retirement comes after a long serving career in the education sector, spanning over 40 years, 23 of those years spent as a CEO in the polytechnic sector.

“John Scott has led this polytechnic from strength to strength over his 12 years as the CEO of CPIT, so as an association we are sad to hear that he has decided to retire,” said Davitt Joslen, President of the Christchurch Polytechnic Students Association.

“John has faced many challenging periods over his years as CEO, especially in recent times. I have to say that during these times I believe John has continued to act with the best interests of this institution and its students at heart. A way to tell whether a CEO really does care about students is to look at the way they treat and relate to the students association. John has helped build a strong working relationship between the CPSA and CPIT,” said Mr Joslen.

“The Association wishes John the best for his future after CPIT, and we hope that his successor will follow in his example and work in the best interests of our students and our institution,” said Mr Joslen.
