The CBI today announced that Paul Drechsler, Chairman of the international firm Bibby Group, has been nominated to succeed Sir Mike Rake as President of the Confederation of British Industries.
"While EU reform is top of the agenda, we mustn’t lose track of other important growth priorities, including ensuring we have an education system that addresses skills shortages and enables all young people to have fulfilling careers", Mr Drechsler highlighted.
"I will also focus on securing the high-quality infrastructure the UK needs to compete on the world stage and ensuring growing firms can access the range of finance options they need to thrive.", he added.
