On his new appointment, Collison said: “I am truly honoured to be elected Chairman and believe the IGA represents the very best of our industry. Now more than ever, it is important that the sector unites under the IGA banner as it continues to operate in an environment of legislative changes and the coronavirus pandemic.”

Stuart James, IGA Chief Executive, added: “Rob’s enthusiasm for the independent sector and IGA activities is so important as the entire industry faces a very challenging time.
