Simon is committed to focusing on the IIAR’s mission of enhancing the awareness, image and practice of the analyst relations profession globally, by aligning with and supporting the needs of AR professionals.

One of his highest priorities is to establish an IIAR chapter in the San Francisco Bay Area, so Simon would like to hear from rainmakers who are interested in bringing AR professionals together on the West Coast.

IIAR Board elections are held every two years, unless unanimous and exceptional decision. All active (fully paid-up) IIAR members are entitled to vote in elections.

The election was organised by an independent IIAR volunteer, and was held fairly, in a process that was transparent to members.

The full line up of our new board is:

The IIAR board is composed of volunteers, collectively responsible for proactively supporting the IIAR’s mission, which is to enhance the awareness, image and practice of the analyst relations profession on a global basis.
