As your new Managing Director, I would like to thank all the members for being patient at this time of great change. It’s been three weeks since I sat in the hot seat and I have hit the ground running.
Shining a light onto the past has made me very aware that we need to be more transparent from my tenure onwards. I understand that my predecessor had a very different way of working, communicating and revealing industry information. That is now changing.

We are opening dialogue with many industry colleagues and organisations to become a cohesive and stronger association that gives increased value to its members.

There are many new plans in the background I cannot tell you about just yet because negotiations are still on the table, but they are forward looking, strengthening, and future proofing the association.
I look forward to receiving your emails: firstname.lastname@example.org
