Pitman, who served IABM as Vice Chair for nine years, will leave the trade association in August this year.
IABM’s current Vice Chair, Graham Pitman, is stepping aside from the role after last nine years. He will be leaving the company in August this year. The international trade association for broadcast and media technology suppliers has now invited applicants for the role.
Reporting to the IABM Members’ Board, this non-executive role ensures transparency and integrity as well as provides experienced counsel and inspires best practice in its processes and activities.
IABM is seeking applications from candidates with substantive board-level experience either in the broadcast and media industry or organisations of similar complexity and type to the IABM – for example, charity, health trust, trade or a similar not-for-profit where there is a high level of accountability to external stakeholders. This includes responsibility for supervision, governance, audit and compliance.
The Vice Chair works for IABM two days per calendar month. As well as ensuring good governance and transparency, the role also involves ensuring effective business and financial processes, remuneration committee duties, staff welfare, and chairing the IABM Supervisory Group.
Established in 1976, the organisation has more than 600 member companies worldwide benefiting from its knowledge, support and leadership. IABM operates on a day-to-day basis under the auspices of a full-time team which receives direction from its elected members’ board.
“I am very grateful to Graham Pitman for his wise counsel over the last nine years,” said Peter White, CEO, IABM. “The new Vice Chair will play an important role in ensuring continued good governance and best practice as we move forward with ambitious plans over the coming years.”
