Jennifer McKeever has been appointed the temporary chairperson of the governing body of the North West Regional College (NWRC).
The appointment is effective from 1 July next until the appointment of a new permanent chairperson.
She takes up the role following the untimely passing earlier this year of Gerard Finnegan, the former governing body chairperson.
The post is remunerated at a rate of £20,000 per annum, plus travel and subsistence allowances which are payable at Northern Ireland Civil Service rates in respect of activities carried out whilst fulfilling their duties.
A former president of Derry Chamber of Commerce, Mrs McKeever is the managing director of the Airporter coach service based in Derry/Londonderry which has operated successfully since being set up 25 years ago.
She has served as a member of the governing body of NWRC since the beginning of this year.
In addition, she is a visiting professor at Ulster University (non-remunerated).
