New IAM Roadsmart CEO confirmed

Date: 02 August 2022   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Antony Kildare has been announced as the new permanent CEO of road safety charity IAM Roadsmart.

Kildare had served as CEO on an interim basis for the past six months, and has now been confirmed in the role.

He is said to have already made significant progress in shaping the future of the charity, focusing on upskilling and education to help grow its 75,000-strong membership, in addition to developing the consumer and commercial arms of the organisation.

Kildare is chair of the board of trustees at charity POHWER, and has as previously held executive and non-executive roles with organisations including EY, the NHS, and the Department of Trade and Industry, and in sectors including economic development, leisure, education, children's services, and professional services. 

He said: "From the outset, the chair, the board of trustees, the team of staff and the IAM Roadsmart members have all been welcoming and encouraging. 

"I share their enduring commitment to our purpose, our members and our volunteers, in making UK roads safer for everyone.

"I am looking forward to building on our strong heritage in improving the skills of drivers and riders, as well as engaging with partners, industry and sector experts across the four nations to ensure future vehicles and roads have the safety of all road users at their heart."

Kildare is said to have already begun reshaping parts of the organisation by recruiting experienced senior leaders.

He said: "The skills and structure of our team going forward will be very important, as we all have a role to play in making UK roads safer.

"Alongside our members and groups, we need to further strengthen our engagement with government and devolved administrations, campaigning for a future fit and safer road network that actively reduces harm.

"There has never been a more important time to encourage, train and support drivers and motorcyclists. I'm thrilled to be joining a community that enjoys riding and driving and puts the safety of all road users at the heart of what they do."

Chair of the IAM Roadsmart board of trustees Stuart Donald said: "We are absolutely delighted to announce that Antony has accepted our offer to become our permanent CEO, taking the charity forward, leading its strategic direction, growth, and people. 

"Antony's considerable leadership experience and commitment to our purpose are key assets to our charity, and we look forward to supporting him to ensure we are best serving our 75,000 members, and all road users, by making UK roads as safe as possible."
