Press statement

We are honoured that Paul Myners has today been appointed by the Prime Minister to the position of Under Secretary of State and Minister for the City in The Treasury.  He has been a Trustee of Tate since 2003 and Chair of the Board of Trustees since 2004 and he has led Tate through one of the most successful periods in its history. His role as Chair will conclude with immediate effect but he will continue his association with Tate as a member of the Tate Foundation.

Sir Howard Davies, who was appointed by the Board to the position of Senior Trustee in March 2008, will act as the interim Chair until the New Year when a decision will be made on the appointment of a long-term Chair.
