Digital Jersey today announced that it has regretfully accepted the resignation of its Chief Executive Ted Ridgway Watt, who is returning to the UK for personal reasons.
Mr Ridgway Watt joined the organisation in January and has been instrumental in the start up of the organisation and in the development of the business plan.
To ensure that there is no loss of momentum towards delivering Digital Jersey’s objectives, non-executive Chairman Paul Masterton is moving to an executive chair role and the organisation is adding additional positions to address business development, partnerships with major industry players and technology development.
Digital Jersey’s non-executive Chairman, Paul Masterton commented
“We are indebted to Ted for his hard work in establishing a brand new organisation and for developing the excellent business plan that will guide Digital Jersey’s future. We wish Ted every success in his future endeavours.”
Ted Ridgway Watt added:
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working in Jersey with the digital industry. This is a very special island with a lot of potential to become a digital centre of excellence. I am very sorry I am unable to continue my work here, but I do wish Jersey the very best in its endeavours and I will stay in touch with the many good friends and colleagues and I have made in the Island."
