Introducing our new Principal & Chief Executive Daniel Braithwaite

Posted: 06.09.2023

Lancaster & Morecambe College (LMC) is delighted to announce that Daniel Braithwaite has been appointed as Principal & Chief Executive. Danny comes to LMC from his role as Assistant Principal at Lakes College, and will start officially in post on Monday 18 September 2023.

On his appointment of Principal, Danny said,

After a fabulous 20 years at the Lakes College, I am extremely excited to be joining Lancaster & Morecambe College as Principal & Chief Executive.

The College has a fantastic future and is placed front and centre to meet the skills development agenda locally and regionally. There are a number of ambitious projects underway, which will transform the economy of the area.

I am very proud to be leading the College during this period of opportunity and look forward to connecting with employers and the community the College serves, and to build on the good work to date.

Danny takes over from Wes Johnson, who has become the new Principal & Chief Executive of Myerscough College after six years at LMC. Regarding his time at LMC, Wes said,

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Lancaster & Morecambe College, a very special college at the heart of its community. I’m sure that the College will continue to thrive under Danny’s leadership and maximise the great opportunities ahead.

Lindsay Price, Chair of the Corporation, said,

Governors and staff are delighted to welcome Danny Braithwaite to LMC, and look forward to him building on the fantastic work undertaken by Wes Johnson, former Principal & Chief Executive. Danny will ensure that the College maximises current and future opportunities for students, staff, businesses and wider stakeholders by continuing to place LMC at the heart of the communities it serves, whilst still remaining an accessible and inclusive college providing education for all.

Governors are immensely grateful to Wes Johnson for his transformational leadership of the College over these past six years and take this opportunity to wish him every success in his new role.
