Welland has been an IAAF council member and treasurer for more than 10 years.

On his new appointment, Welland said:

“I am truly honoured to be elected president and believe the IAAF represents the very best of our industry. It is important, more than ever, that the industry unites under the Federation as it continues to operate in an environment of a post-Brexit trade deal, legislative changes and the coronavirus pandemic.”

Wendy Williamson, IAAF chief executive, added:

“Richard’s enthusiasm for the automotive aftermarket and IAAF activities is so important as the entire industry faces its most challenging time. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Richard, the board and the wider IAAF council on protecting the rights of the automotive aftermarket.”
