Even handing in my notice wasn't simple. I wrote a letter to Mrs A, only to discover some time later that her office had not passed it on to her for over a week because she was ill. So by the time we actually met to discuss it all, her opportunity to brief the incoming CEO of the Syria Trust (of which Massar is a part) had been cut short, and we ended up with all three of us sitting in the same slightly awkward meeting, rather than having an informal one-to-one chat. It wasn't the first time I had met Omar, who I think will do just fine as CEO of the Trust. Having the greater responsibility of Massar thrust upon him can't have made his eyes light up; there is plenty of deep surgery he will need to do to get the Trust in any sort of productive shape, including getting rid of some very senior managers. But he's a big boy, with plenty of support to make his responsibilities a little bit easier.
