GDC announces the departure of the Chief Executive

GDC announces the departure of the Chief Executive and Registrar  

The GDC has announced that Ian Brack will be stepping down as Chief Executive and Registrar of the General Dental Council (GDC), on 6 November.

Under his leadership for the past eight years, the organisation has changed almost beyond recognition, and Ian is leaving having placed the GDC on a sound financial footing and implemented a strong culture of planning and operational delivery.

The Chief Operating Officer, Gurvinder Soomal, will act as Interim Chief Executive until a new CEO and Registrar is in place.

The GDC’s Council is soon to confirm the budget and Annual Retention Fee (ARF) for next year, along with the Costed Corporate Plan for 2024-2026. Having these important decisions settled will be a good point to recruit a new CEO to take the GDC’s priorities into the future.
