The States of Alderney has "regretfully" accepted the resignation of its Chief Executive Officer.
Kathryn Jones took up the role in March 2021 and supported the Island through the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, helping to alleviate disruption to public services.
The States also credited her for contributing to the creation of the Island Plan, allowing greater governmental focus on the “most important issues it faces”.
Ian Carter, Chair of Alderney’s Policy & Finance Committee, said: “I would like to thank Kath for her service on behalf of the States of Alderney, and to me personally, since taking up the role as chair of the Policy & Finance Committee. I wish her well for her future endeavours”.
Ms Jones said it has been an honour “to work with so many talented, professional, and skilled staff in support of the States of Alderney and the community to help shape the strategic direction the island needs to place it in a better position.
“I would particularly like to acknowledge the professionalism, expertise and support provided to me to make these changes for the benefit of the community.”

Ms Jones grew up in Pembrokeshire and spent much of her professional life in London, previously working as an environmental scientist and in local government.
She was appointed Senior Administrator to the Government of Sark in November 2013 and quickly felt part of the community through volunteering at sheep racing, getting involved with amateur dramatics and hosting musicians for the Sark Folk Festival.
Ms Jones replaced Andrew Muter as CEO of the States of Alderney late in March 2021. Mr Muter left the island suddenly following the outbreak of Covid-19.
