Chris Seed Heading Back To MFAT?
Rumours coming out of MFAT suggest that Chris Seed, currently a Deputy Secretary of Defence, is to return to MFAT to fill the Deputy Secretary slot occupied by the late Allan Williams. If true, The Hive welcomes this news. Seed is a highly capable operator and a thoroughly nice fellow to boot. Like Williams Seed is from a younger generation than the rest of MFAT's Senior Management Group. Generational change is essential for the organisation to survive. We were hoping that either Dr Walker or Dr Barrington would have been given the vacant Deputy Secretary Programme Two (Economic) job for the same reason (since there has been no announcement on this job we guess that there is still hope).
