Chairman Derek McMullan has announced that Tony Greenidge, previously IAM RoadSmart’s Business Development Director, has taken up the role of Interim Chief Executive from Monday 4 May.
His appointment means Mike Quinton is stepping down as CEO with immediate effect, following his resignation announced at the end of March but he has agreed to continue to provide project support to Tony and the Senior Management Team for the remainder of his notice period. His good work over the last two years means we are well placed to manage our way through the various challenges that the current Coronavirus lockdown presents.
Tony was appointed by a selection panel led by Trustee Nick Lomas, Nominations Committee Chairman. The Trustees have every confidence Tony is the best person for the job. He understands the need for continuity, has an in-depth knowledge of IAM RoadSmart and in his time as Business Development Director has been successful in turning around the performance of our commercial divisions.
Tony’s first challenge will be to lead IAM RoadSmart out of the current Coronavirus lockdown. The Trustees have asked him to start work immediately, with members of the SMT, to develop a plan which will help us move out of the current situation and back to business, when Government advice allows.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to contribute to our survey on e-scooters yet, please don’t forget to take part. The House of Commons Transport Select Committee is calling for evidence as part of its inquiry into the future use of e-scooters in the UK. IAM RoadSmart believes this is an important safety issue for all road users and is therefore seeking members’ views as part of its submission to the inquiry. Please tell us your thoughts on the safety, benefits and importance, or otherwise, of e-scooters as a viable mode of transport.
The survey closes at 5pm on Tuesday 19 May.

Since many of us are spending more time at home at the moment as we support efforts to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, we’ve decided to give those who miss the freedom of the road the opportunity to be reminded of better times – when we could drive or ride out to visit friends, to go on holiday or even just go and see some of the wonderful views our country has to offer. So, while we all look forward to when lockdown ends and we can get back on the road, if you have a favourite photo that makes you think of why you love driving and riding, or that reminds you of wonderful days out that you’ve enjoyed in your car or on your bike, please share it with us via social media on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, or email us
We’d love to hear your stories about why you love your picture too!
Stay safe everyone.
