Simon Johnson confirmed as JLC chief

    The Jewish Leadership Council has made Simon Johnson its chief executive four and a half months after he became its interim head.

    Mr Johnson, who has previously worked at ITV and the Football Association, took the helm after the departure of previous chief executive Jeremy Newmark.

    JLC chairman Mick Davis said its trustees unanimously confirmed the appointment. “We are delighted that, after his high profile career in sport and media, he has committed himself to the JLC,” he said. “Simon has rapidly gained the confidence of the trustees and the council of members and has already had a positive impact on the JLC’s activities.”

    Mr Johnson, who is chairman of Hampstead Garden Suburb United Synagogue, said that “I have had nothing but positive feedback since taking on the interim role and am delighted that all sides think that it is in the JLC’s long-term interests to make this position permanent.”
