The IMI has announced the appointment of Steve Nash as its new CEO.

Taking over from January next year, Nash, who is currently After Sales Director for BMW, will bring over 40 years of experience to his new role.

Since graduating in 1977 Nash has worked in the motor industry in both retail and manufacturing. He joined BMW in 1986 and has been a Director of the company since 1997.

Commenting on the appointment Nash said: “This is a very exciting step in my career.  After a long association with the IMI as a non-executive Board member I am delighted to be able to apply that experience, along with my broad sector knowledge, to the full time role of leading the Institute.

“Huge strides have been made at Fanshaws in the last ten years and I am looking forward to maintaining that momentum and shaping a future direction which will ensure our success in the years ahead.”

Chair elect Adrian Smith added: “With his extensive sector experience and his track record in supporting the organisation through change, Steve is ideally placed to lead the next phase in the IMI’s ambitious plans. Steve is also fully committed to the value of Registered Professionals in our sector, which will raise the profile of thousands of skilled individuals working in the retail automotive sector.”

Nash will work with the IMI executive team and the Board to further the cause of the group and of the motor trade.
