International association for the measurement and evaluation of communication
AMEC CEO – update
AMEC’s succession planning team has compiled a shortlist from over 90 applicants for the position of AMEC CEO.
Barry Leggetter, the existing CEO, will leave at the end of the year after 11 years in the post.
Richard Bagnall, AMEC’s chairman, said he was delighted with the response to the job posting. “We have some very high calibre professionals on our shortlist,” he said.
Bagnall said the interviews would take place in the next few weeks. He expects the AMEC Board will make a decision on the new candidate in June.
He said: “What is important is to find a new CEO who understands the importance of delivering results for our members and the PR industry.
“We need to continue to punch above our weight while further developing our global reputation for the education and promotion of best-practice measurement and evaluation services.”
Bagnall said when Leggetter joined AMEC after a long career leading the UK offices of some of the world’s top global PR Groups, the organisation had just 19 members. Leggetter’s energy, experience and leadership has seen AMEC grow significantly to over 160 member organisations in more than 80 countries.
Leggetter’s tenure has created a series of industry firsts for AMEC’s members, including the creation of the annual AMEC Global Summit; the global Industry Insights Study and the development of a variety of online education resources.
Bagnall said Leggetter had made an outstanding contribution to AMEC’s growth and to the visibility of measurement as an important part of the PR professional’s skillset.
He said: “Barry’s leadership and international approach has been at the heart of AMEC’s growth. He has a collaborative style which has got the best support out of our members as volunteers and other trade association friends and partners.
“The ideal candidate will be able to build on the legacy that Barry has established whilst also helping drive the organisation in new directions.”
