IAM RoadSmart, CEO, Tony Greenidge, has taken the decision after four years with the charity to step down. Tony originally joined the UK’s largest independent road safety charity as Business Development Director and took over as CEO 18 months ago. He will remain in his position until the end of March 2022.
Tony said: “We have delivered excellent financial results during the 18-month pandemic period to date and as we embark on an exciting phase in our history, this is a key time for IAM RoadSmart which will be underpinned by a new five-year strategic plan. After much contemplation, I feel it is important that the CEO who takes our charity forward into a new phase of change and strategic growth, remains in place to see it through to completion.
Tony continued; ‘’I will work closely with Trustees to prepare the path for the next CEO. The significant investment in technology, infrastructure, and product development that we are committed to will ensure that our strategic plan has the necessary tools and resources in place to support the driver training, education and compliance needs of businesses, the traditional company car and increasingly grey fleet drivers. The recruitment that has taken place over the last 12 months means that the new CEO inherits a highly skilled team, I look forward to handing the baton over and will watch with interest as IAM RoadSmart goes from strength to strength”.
Stuart Donald QPM, Chairman of IAM RoadSmart, commented on the news: “Tony has achieved a lot in the last four years, and we respect his decision to step down. It is a pivotal time for IAM RoadSmart as we progress and adapt for future challenges. I am pleased that Tony will continue to lead the charity for the next five months to help with a smooth transition”.
