The CEO of the Institute of Quarrying, Phil James, is moving on to a new role after four years in charge. Phil joined the Institute in late 2012 as joint CEO with MPQC and brought a unique combination of quarry management experience and professional body expertise to the role.
Phil is joining the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) in September 2016 as their new CEO, where he hopes to continue his connection with the minerals industry and to combine the challenge of an exciting new role with achieving a PhD.
Commenting on his time at IQ, Phil said, “Working for IQ has been a tremendous privilege. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with members from around the world, whose dedication and passion for the quarrying profession is nothing short of inspirational. I’ll be very sorry to leave an amazing team and a very supportive Board of Trustees. But the Institute is in great shape and has a fantastic set of plans in place to celebrate its centenary next year and to accelerate its growth and influence as it reaches its 100th birthday”.
