“We’re delighted that Charley will be joining us in the near future. After an exhaustive search and a really strong field of candidates, we’ve found a professional we feel is the perfect person for the job. She will bring a wealth of talent and experience to what is already an incredibly dynamic organisation. Anyone who knows Charley knows that she gives 110% to any endeavour she undertakes, always with a great sense of fun that remains such an important part of our industry,” says Jimmy Murphy, President IAPI.
