Election Results: The New IIAR Board

The IIAR is delighted to announce the election results of its new Board Members effective as of 1 December 2011 for 12 months.

The new Board is as follows:

Managing Director – Intelligen Analyst Relations and IIAR Asia/Pacific Chapter Lead

Head of Sunesis Analyst Relations and Director, Harvard PR

Previous IIAR Board member and Co-Founder of the IIAR, Ludovic Leforestier commented, “After five years the IIAR has grown to be a respected voice. It now effectively shares best practices in AR, helps AR pros in their career development and is firmly engaged in a constructive dialogue with the industry analysts.

“The new Board is ideally placed to take the institute to a new level; congratulations and thank you to all of them for assuring the IIAR’s future.”

Turnout for this year’s election was higher than ever before with 68% of members voting electronically. We were delighted to see so many members contribute and are very happy that the IIAR is making such positive strides in becoming a truly global organisation. Regions with growing membership figures will now be well represented in the Board – the USA seeing three members on the Board, Australia one and the UK one.

It is the first time in the IIAR’s history to have a completely new Board with all five previous members stepping down. The new Board will be holding a conference call in the next few weeks to present their ideas and plans to members – further details to follow. In the meantime members can find out more about each Board member’s goals for the institute by clicking here.
