"On behalf of the Panel, I would like to thank Margaret for her leadership, energy and drive during her six years at the helm. Margaret was an outstanding Chief Executive and has played a key role with the Panel for many years. Margaret leaves the Panel in great shape and goes with our thanks and best wishes.”
