Professor Wallace was elected to the Council of the IAM on 11 May 2011. A proud Dundonian, Angus is Professor of Orthopaedic & Accident Surgery at the University of Nottingham, a post he has held since 1985.
He has served the IAM Motoring Trust since 2006, when it replaced the AA Motoring Trust (AAMT). He had been a member of the AAMT since 2002 as result of research he and his team had carried out on injuries sustained in aircraft accidents, as well as his work with the Transport Research Laboratory on leg injuries in road accidents and, subsequently, research on arm injuries.
During his long clinical career, Angus has held many senior posts in Orthopaedic Training, Sports Medicine and HealthCare Informatics. He has lectured widely on his areas of expertise and has been published extensively at home and abroad.
In his role a Medical Adviser to the Institute of Biomechanics at Nottingham University, he has been part of the teams whose successful innovations relating to joint surgery include the development of the Vaios Shoulder Replacement, which won the "British Engineering Excellence Award" for Best Mechanical Product in 2010.

Dr Holden has been an IAM Council member since 1994 passing his IAM test in June 1987.
Motoring is very much in his blood with his interest starting as a child when he used to accompany his maternal grandfather to the family business selling Austin - Morris and Citroen in Sheffield during the early 1960s.
Road safety was something always in his mind after witnessing a serious road accident as a child. Passing his driving test ten weeks after his 17th birthday he remembers his uncle’s injunction to him to always wear his seatbelt and that driver error is the cause of most accidents.
Qualifying in medicine from the University of Sheffield in 1979 he trained as a General Practitioner and is now senior partner of the training and teaching practice in Matlock which he joined 30 years ago.
In 1983 Peter was invited to act as a medical officer for special stage motor rallies. This work satisfied both his medical and motoring interests and has spent 31years officiating at such events including 17 for the RAC Rally and 6 years at Cadwell Park Motor Racing Circuit becoming a Motor Sports Association Licensed Rescue Crew member in his own right and not because of his medical status. Such Pre Hospital Emergency work in the resource poor environment outside a hospital was a relatively new and challenging development in medicine and led to him becoming Medical Aircrew on the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance in 1998.
This work brings him into contact with the results of poor driving skills on a regular basis - 60% of the calls are to Road Traffic Accidents - and reinforces his view that prevention is better than cure. He still flies regular shifts on both the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and also the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Peter is an examiner in Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine for The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
As an Immediate Care Physician to East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust; in 2009 he completed the response driving course permitting him to respond to ambulance service emergencies in his own vehicle utilising blue lights and sirens re-qualifying in May 2014. Through his work with the British Medical Association he has also been involved with the DVLA in reviewing medical aspects of driver licensing and the issues of the ageing driver.
His experience in matters of business and charity operations stem from his 21 years as a trustee and officer of the medical education charity BASICS.
He has been a director of the British Medical Association for 22 years and of several other companies including board membership of a plc subsidiary. He looks forward to helping take the IAM towards the third decade of the 21st century.
