He joins existing trustees: Dr Gina Bromage, Dr Catherine Lloyd, Elizabeth Coyle-Camp, Nick Lomas, John Jenkins, Nick Stein and Stuart Donald, QPM under the leadership of recently appointed chairman Derek McMullan and interim chief executive officer Tony Greenidge.
His new role includes chairing the Finance and Audit Committee.

Commenting on his appointment, Jeff said: “I am delighted to take up this role and look forward to using my knowledge and experience to help the organisation make UK roads even safer.”
Derek McMullan said: “Jeff joins our existing trustees, management and staff, in contributing to the cause at an extraordinary time when road safety needs to be high on the national agenda as we all return to the roads after an extended period of restricted driving and riding.
“IAM RoadSmart’s advanced driver and rider coaching and the modules and assessments it offers for all road users have never been more relevant than they are today. Jeff’s appointment will help us to drive our charitable work forward in a fast-changing world.”
