TMC's Paul Hollick to replace Roddy Graham as new chairman of the ICFM
His appointment will come into effect on 25th November at the ICFM’s 2014 annual national members’ conference at the Henry Ford College, Loughborough when Roddy Graham hands over the reins.
Roddy Graham commented: ‘I have served as chairman since 2006 and at the beginning of this year recommended to Council that they should consider putting in place a potential successor. I was delighted that Paul Hollick was selected as my deputy chairman. In the summer I advised Council of my intention to step down from my role as chairman and Council member, as I no longer have an active day-to-day interest in the industry. The advances we have made in my time as chairman would simply not have been possible without the invaluable input and hard work put into the activities of the ICFM by my fellow Council members, who give freely of their time.’
Hollick is commercial director at The Miles Consultancy (TMC) and moved to TMC in August 2014, leading its strategic development, sales and marketing plus product innovation and development.
Between 2007 and 2014, he was chief commercial officer at multi-marque leasing company Alphabet (GB) Ltd and was previously at Inchcape Fleet Solutions where, as head of finance and IT from 2003 to 2007, he played a key role in building up the company following its earlier rebranding from Kenning Leaseline.
Of his appointment, Paul Hollick observed: ‘I am honoured to have received the full support of Council and will have a tough act to follow when industry stalwart Roddy steps down as chairman at the conference.
‘During his tenure, membership of the ICFM has risen by over 50% and the ICFM has been modernised with a new logo, new website, new initiatives including the BVRLA Professional Fleet Consultant Development Programme and renewed focus. Above all, Roddy has been passionate about giving back to the industry and is a strong advocate of professional fleet training as a means of developing a better career path and adding real value to employer organisations.
‘I share Roddy’s vision that one day all jobs advertised in the fleet sector should state that ICFM membership be a pre-requisite. I look forward to building upon on the progress that has been made under his chairmanship.’
