Jeremy Parsons has had his temporary position as head of Cutty Sark International changed to a permanent one.

Parsons assumed the leadership of Cutty Sark International on a temporary basis in May, replacing Mike Salmon, who stood down after 19 years with the company. The switch to a permanent position was confirmed yesterday (5 September), with Parsons starting the post on a full-time basis from the beginning of this month

"Jeremy has brought a high level of energy and determination to the role in his acting capacity and the board of Cutty Sark International are very confident that he will continue to do so," said Hugh Sturges on behalf of Cutty Sark's board.
