John Pemberton joined BIGGA in March 1993 as its accountant, moving up to chief executive in March 2004.

"The BIGGA Board of Directors wishes to thank John for his leadership and dedication to the job over the years which has resulted in BIGGA significantly increasing in size, profile and industry positioning," said chairman Paul Worster.

Pemberton will continue in his current position until the end of April 2011 and will be helping the board with the recruitment of a suitable successor.
