IMCA’s Chief Executive, Chris Charman, has stepped down, with immediate effect (as from 1 May). Jane Bugler has become Acting Chief Executive, thus ensuring that IMCA is in very safe hands. A new Chief Executive will be sought to take IMCA forward and continue to deliver ever more support for our 1,000+ members in over 60 countries.
In announcing his decision, Chris Charman has asked that all members and members of committees receive this message:
“Now that the changes implemented inside IMCA are well under way and gathering pace, by mutual consent I am standing down, leaving the way forward to build upon the new foundations we have created.
“The collegiate, constructive and responsible manner in which the industry addresses safety issues will be a powerful and permanent memory for me. I must offer my thanks and best wishes to the team who have been so supportive to me as a newcomer, and also to those members and friends I have made in the offshore community across the globe.”
IMCA’s Council and OMC would like to thank Chris Charman for his input since taking up his post in early December 2012, particularly in working with them on the five year plan and establishing IMCA’s ‘Vision and Strategy 2014-2019’ which provides firm foundations on which to build our thriving organisation.
