ABE’s founder chairman, Lyndon Jones, to retire
ABE Founder Chairman, Lyndon Jones, has announced his retirement.
Lyndon’s passionate commitment to helping people improve their lives through education has been an inspiration to all who have met him. He will be sorely missed.
ABE’s CEO, Gareth Robinson, paid the following tribute:
“It is with sadness, that, after 41 years of working for the business, Lyndon Jones has retired as at the end of January 2015.
Lyndon founded ABE in 1973 and has been its driving force ever since, establishing it as a respected qualification-awarding body in many countries of the world where access to business education is limited.
All of us at ABE wish to acknowledge the huge contribution that Lyndon has made to ABE and also, in helping to progress business education both in the UK and globally. As can be imagined, Lyndon has built up a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this field and we are grateful to him that we will still be able to call upon his services as needed.
Maggie Jones (Lyndon's wife) will retire from the Council of ABE at the same time and we should like to thank her for her valuable contribution for over nearly 15 years."
Lyndon has enriched the lives of over 1 million students and it is our task to continue his good work.
We will miss them both and wish them a long and happy retirement.”
