Colin Grahamslaw to be new WCF Secretary General

Colin Grahamslaw, Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club, is to leave on August 13 to take up the post of Secretary General of the World Curling Federation. Colin will replace Mike Thomson at the WCF who is retiring later this year.

The full press release from the RCCC is here.

Best wishes to Colin in his new post. The possible move, after more than five years at Cairnie House, had been widely rumoured. Certainly, Grahamslaw's talents will be put to good use with the world body. But there will be consequences for the Royal Club. And perhaps opportunities too. The search for a new CEO has already begun.

Interesting, and uncertain times ahead in the next few months for the RCCC, I suspect.
