Longstanding CEO of UKWA/AIWA – Roger Williams – is to hand over the majority of his duties in the New Year. He will continue to work for UKWA until 31 July 2015, taking the staff lead in hosting the IFWLA convention in Liverpool 1-4 June, and UKWA’s Annual Lunch and Awards ceremony at the Dorchester hotel on 1 July. He will also retain his responsibilities as Secretary General of the International Federation of Warehousing Logistics Associations (IFWLA).
Roger Williams will have served nearly 15 years with UKWA/AIWA by the time he retires, and looks back on his unusually long tenure with a deserved sense of satisfaction.
“Joining UKWA after 32 years with the Royal Marines was not quite a seamless change, but my first career prepared for me well for the unusual, the unexpected and the impossible! During my second career, UKWA/AIWA has changed out of all recognition since 1998, and I am proud to have been part of that change. I leave UKWA/AIWA in the knowledge it is positioned well to meet the challenges – known and unknown – that it will face in the future; not least of all is the prospect of another – and perhaps more fragile – coalition Government.”
The name of his successor is due to be announced within a few days.
