AIFA appoints Ivan Martin as Deputy Chairman

Ivan will serve alongside Amanda Davidson after it was decided to appoint a second Deputy Chairperson. Both Amanda and Ivan will support AIFA's Independent Chairman The Rt. Hon John Gummer MP.

John Gummer, AIFA Chairman, said; "The AIFA Council recently undertook a Corporate Governance Review to ensure that it was providing the best service to its members. As part of that review, it was identified that AIFA should establish a second Deputy Chairman role.

"After discussion with the AIFA Council and universal acceptance, I am delighted to announce that Ivan Martin, Executive Chairman of Sesame, has agreed to become our new Deputy Chairman. I know that with Ivan and Amanda Davidson we have two outstanding Deputies who, as Chairman, I can rely fully upon."

Ivan Martin, Executive Chairman of Sesame, added: "It is an honour to be invited to take up the role of Deputy Chairman alongside Amanda Davidson. The work that AIFA undertakes is vital to the future success of the IFA community and I look forward to working closely with John, Director General Chris Cummings and AIFA council members, as our profession rises to the economic and regulatory challenges ahead."
