Stewart Edmondson has joined the UK Electronic Skills Foundation (UKESF) as its first CEO yesterday, Monday 22nd June.
Stewart replaces Wendy Daniell who is now retiring and who has been an important driving force in developing UKESF from inception to the successful, well-regarded programme it has become.
As the new CEO, Stewart’s role will be in expanding the scope and scale of UKESF to play a transformational role in the UK electronic systems industry’s skills landscape.
Stewart joins the UKESF with a well-grounded appreciation of engineering skills gained from an excellent technical background and senior management experience. He served 24 years as an Engineering Officer in the Royal Air Force, specialising in operational communications-electronics systems prior to assuming senior positions responsible for ICT policy and training, maintenance regulations and information management. Subsequently, he has worked at QinetiQ before undertaking executive roles in HR Services at Xchanging and then BAE Systems with a focus on early careers programmes.
