Successful Term Draws to a Close as New Chair to be Announced Tomorrow

Today, Leigh Brown is stepping down as Chair of the ATCM Board of Directors as her term comes to an end. Her replacement will be announced on the 5th November and will be introduced to the network during an EGM, which will proceed High Street Conversations (starting at 3pm).

Leigh’s time as Chair has been incredibly successful. From taking over during a time of uncertainty, she refocused the organisation on quality of membership delivery for practitioners, to provide much needed stability. In her time as Chair, practitioner membership has grown, company membership has grown, membership satisfaction has grown, engagement in events has grown (last year’s Summer School in Camden was a sell out) and we have welcomed back high level corporate members such as Visa and Google into the network for the first time in a decade.

Leigh has not been working alone. Other members of the ATCM Board are stepping down following invaluable contributions over many years.

Emma Thornton, former Chair of the East of England and Vice-Chair of ATCM and Richard Guiney, former Treasurer of ATCM, have played important roles, providing knowledge, insight and guidance during challenging times for the organisation.

Leigh said:

“It’s been a team effort, from the staff at ATCM who may be few but are a mighty force, to the other practitioners on the Board. There are some very talented people within the ATCM network who have helped drive the organisation forward and it has been a privilege to work alongside and learn from people who all care passionately about their places. I am delighted to be staying in the world of place management in my new role as Client Success Director at Miconex. This role will allow me to help support not just one place but places across not just the UK and Ireland but North America and beyond. I wish the new chair and the board every success for the future.”

ATCM would like to thank the contributions of Leigh, Emma and Richard over the years. We will continue to work with them in the coming years.
