James Rees has been elected president of ICCA, a decision made at the ICCA Congress in Dubai.
Rees was first elected to the ICCA board in 2012 and became a vice president in 2017. Before this, he served in leadership positions in ICCA’s UK & Ireland Chapter.
Competing for the ICCA presidency alongside Rees were Juan José Garcia and Eric Bakermans, both long-term members of the global association’s board.
"What we can do, with the right leadership, is to use ICCA’s strengths to drive innovation, creativity, and incentive for improvement," said Rees. "And this is what I am going to deliver."
"As ICCA president, I will be a true advocate for our business, a champion of our sector and ensure that ICCA’s voice is heard by government, in a language they understand. It will be an honour and privilege to serve as your president."
