WENDY WILLIAMSON ANNOUNCED AS NEW IAAF CHIEF EXECUTIVE

by

Wendy-WilliamsonIt has quickly emerged that Wendy Williamson will be Brian Spratt’s successor at the Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF).

She has been named as the new Chief Executive, and will take over the reins from Spratt in July.

The announcement of Williamson’s appointment should be greeted positively, especially with her aftermarket background, having worked at Unipart, TTC and most recently heading up the aftermarket section for the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Current Chief Executive Brian Spratt, who retires from his post in June, is happy with Williamson taking over, and will be there to welcome her in April when she will begin her three-month handover.

He added: “This is reassuring news for me and IAAF members. To have someone of Wendy’s experience and enthusiasm taking over the reins makes me very confident for the federation’s future.”

All  IAAF members have been informed of Williamson’s appointment, while the council gave its unanimous approval at its last meeting.

Graham Knight, IAAF President, said: “Finding the right person to follow Brian, who would have universal industry respect and detailed knowledge, was a daunting task, but I’ve every confidence that in Wendy we have found the right person to take the IAAF forward.

“Wendy’s passion and enthusiasm for the independent automotive aftermarket and proven track record of achievement is second to none. I am very much looking forward to working with her.”
