Hexagon FM's managing director Nicola Lathbury has been promoted to chair of the IWFM's Women in FM Special Interest Group, which is holding its annual conference today.
Lathbury has been "a dedicated volunteer for IWFM for the last five years" and has hosted many events in the Midlands and in London for WIFM and the Midlands Region Committee.
She has set herself a goal "to bring WIFM events to the rest of the country throughout her term, so that everyone gets to experience the support of the WIFM network".
She has kicked off her tenure by arranging to bring a WIFM mini conference to the Midlands Region, sponsored by Interserve on 10 May. The continuing theme is 'Delivering FM Success through Inclusion'.
Lathbury said: "It has been great to work with people like Jackie [Furey] and Pauline [Mitchell], they are loyal volunteers and have been an inspiration to work with. They are definitely big shoes to fill. I am proud to take over the reigns as chair of Women in FM from Jackie and follow in the footsteps of some of my heroes - Liz Kentish, Lucy Jeynes, Julie Kortens and Anne Lennox-Martin."
