Lesley will take up her new role at IMEX in Frankfurt (19-21 April) during the Chapter meeting and will succeed Kerrin MacPhie, Director of Conference and Exhibition Sales at ACC Liverpool, who has held the position since October 2013.
Lesley says of her new role:
I am privileged to continue the good work that Kerrin has done throughout her Chairmanship.
ICCA plays a crucial role in shaping industry conversations, offering thought leadership on the issues facing our sector today. Increasing our digital engagement with industry colleagues and our Executive Committee presents an exciting opportunity for us to further cement our position as a global knowledge hub and resource.
My priority is to work with the rest of the committee to ensure ICCAUK&I grows from strength to strength and continues to deliver for its members through an inspiring education programme and through business development opportunities.
