I’ve been away on holiday for a week, so this is old news, and you’ll probably have seen that we have a new head of rep, Jonathan Scheele, who will take office on 1 August. I have known Jonathan since I moved to Brussels in 1995, as we were in the same theatre group, and I’m really pleased he will be my new boss. It really will be a new era for this office, because his first main task will be overseeing the office move to its new premises in Smith Square. So by the end of 2010, we’ll be in new shinier premises with much better public facilities, and with a new man at the helm. Let’s see what happens!
Update 11.30: Have just found out that our new head of office is a blogger!
