Senior figure to leave CBI.

THE CBI has announced that Katja Hall will step down as deputy directorgeneral after nine years at the UK employers' group.

Ms Hall, who has led the CBI's policy development and lobbying work - including in the run-up to the 2015 general election - was promoted from chief policy director to deputy director-general in May, 2014.

She has led the CBI's policy, international and governance teams and represented CBI members' interests both nationally and internationally to governments around the world on issues such as financial services, infrastructure, education and exports. She championed the CBI's campaign to stay in a reformed EU and launched the Great Business Debate, a campaign to improve the public's confidence in business. She will leave the CBI at the end of October.

Katja said she would miss her "wonderful" colleagues, but said it was the right time to take the next step in my career, adding: "I will be taking some time off to decide on my next move."
