David Jeremiah, the States of Alderney's chief executive officer, has announced he will retire in 2010.

He has served in the role for nearly five years after taking over from David Jenkins in January 2005.

Mr Jeremiah, 59, said: "Working in Alderney has been interesting and challenging."

He will leave his post on his 60th birthday, 13 February 2010, and said he was looking forward to spending time in Tenby, Wales, with his wife Joy.

He was educated at Leicester University and was called to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1972.

Mr Jeremiah became a Queen's Counsel in 2002 and was awarded the OBE in 2005.

His career has seen him hold appointments in the Solomon Islands, St Helena, the Falkland Islands, the Turks and Caicos Islands, the British Antarctic Territory and the South Georgia/South Sandwich Islands.
