Wendy Williamson, Chief Executive of IAAF, has been appointed to the board and made treasurer of FIGIEFA, the association representing the needs of the European aftermarket to governments and legislators of the European Union.
The IAAF and FIGIEFA have a close working relationship, monitoring and contributing to new European legislation affecting the trade. It is this partnership that works to represent the interests of IAAF members in the UK to European and international institutions, promoting the contribution of the independent automotive aftermarket in order to achieve the EU’s goals for a competitive European economy.
Both organisations work together on a number of issues including type approval, roadworthiness proposals, eCall, telemetry and the Connected Car.
Commenting on her new role, Williamson said: “I’m delighted to be working more closely with FIGIEFA. In this additional role, the IAAF will be able to maintain its key position of taking both the challenges and opportunities in the UK trade to European legislators.”
