Business Council

The Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) began by updating people on changes to the Business Council. Arun Sarin, the outgoing Chief Executive of Vodafone and Jean-Pierre Garnier, the former CEO of GlaxoSmithKline have stepped down from the council in reflection of the fact that they no longer have roles in UK-based businesses.

They were replaced by three members – Andrew Witty, the new CEO of GlaxoSmithKline, Ian Livingstone, the CEO of BT and Paul Walsh, the CEO of Diaggeo. In addition, the chairmanship, which was always going to be on a revolving basis, would switch from Mervin Davis, the Chair of Standard Chartered, to Stephen Green, the Chair of HSBC from next January. Mr Davis would remain a council member.
