Released on 10 March 2011

The Interim Management Association,  (IMA),  part of the REC, has appointed Jason Atkinson, Managing Director at Russam GMS as Chair, with Raj Tulsiani, Co-Founder and CEO at Green Park Executive Resourcing into the role of Vice Chair.

Jason and Raj will now focus on developing the vision for the organisation for the next three years.  The duo will be unequivocally focused on creating a powerful brand based on the highest quality and increasing professional standards.  Ensuring IMA member firms are synonymous with providing exceptional quality of service, whilst highlighting the risks of using a firm which has not had to adhere to a strict code of conduct.

Jason Atkinson, Chair of the IMA said:

“The last couple of years have not been easy for any industry but the Interim Management sector has shown its resilience and demonstrated its value to businesses in these economically challenging periods. That is why I am so pleased to have this opportunity to take forward the IMA to spearhead value for members. 

“We are here to represent quality driven firms which are committed to delivering exceptional value to the Interim Management recruitment process and that means building the brand, protecting the value and raising standards.  It is vital that the recruitment industry and employers are provided with recruitment partners which guarantee the provision of a quality standard.  As an IMA member the code of practice affords us no shortcuts. 

"As the industry evolves, we see the proliferation of social networking and developing technologies which are useful tools however when you are recruiting for senior Interim roles this is only one part of the value employers expect and this is where an Interim Management Provider is so incredibly valuable.”

“This is an exciting time for the IMA and I look forward to working with Raj to build on the hard work and success already achieved.”

Raj Tulsiani, Vice Chair said:

“I whole-heartedly agree with Jason.  I am delighted to be taking on the reins of Deputy Chair.  We have a great opportunity to promote the high standards, professionalism and quality of the membership to external audiences.  It is about delivering value to members and driving awareness of Interim in the wider business arena.” 

Announcements will be made within the month on the appointment of the Executive Committee.
