Matthew Vickers heads to Ombudsman Services as Scottish Legal Complaints Commission lose another Chief Executive

Matthew Vickers, SLCC CEO resigns for mediation role. THE Scottish Legal Complaints Commission (SLCC) – the ever popular sinkhole of the £320 a year complaints levy - has announced the resignation of it’s current Chief Executive - Matthew Vickers - who steps down in March 2015 for a post in the world of big business mediation.

Mr Vickers took on the CEO role at the SLCC during summer of 2012 making him the third ‘appointed’ Chief Executive not counting two civil servants who filled the post before the SLCC became operational in 2008. Vickers is leaving to take up the role of Deputy Chief Ombudsman at Ombudsman Services - a not-for-profit organisation which provides independent dispute resolution for the communication, energy and property sectors.

Commenting on the resignation SLCC chair, Bill Brackenridge said: “We are grateful to Matt for his leadership and contribution since he joined the SLCC as CEO in June 2012. He and the management and staff have worked hard to make the SLCC a more efficient, effective and influential organisation. We are now well established as an independent and impartial body. Of course, we recognise that there is a great deal of work to be done and we have started our search to find a CEO who will help us to tackle it."
