Barry Leggetter will step down as CEO of the International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC) at the end of the year following 11 years in the position.
Upon assuming the role, Leggetter has grown the organisation from 19 members in 2007, to over 160 member organisations in over 80 countries. His leadership also saw the creation of the AMEC Global Summit, the Industry Insights Study and the development of various online education resources.
AMEC is now searching for a highly motivated professional with comms or trade association experience to assume the role of chief executive.
Richard Bagnall, AMEC’s chairman, said: “What is important is to find a new CEO who understands the importance of delivering results for our members and the PR industry. We need to continue to punch above our weight while further developing our global reputation for the education and promotion of best-practice measurement and evaluation services.”
He added: “Barry’s leadership and international approach has been at the heart of AMEC’s growth. He has a collaborative style which has got the best support out of our members as volunteers and other trade association friends and partners.
“The ideal candidate will be able to build on the legacy that Barry has established whilst also helping drive the organisation in new directions.”
Bagnall will lead the search for the new chief executive. Interested candidates should email him with their CV at firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is Monday 14 May 2018.
