The Independent Automotive Aftermarket Federation (IAAF) has confirmed that team member Ann Silvester’s new role is now Office Manager.
Ann joined the Federation back in 2000 as Trade Secretary, where she has for the past 19 years made the role her own, supporting IAAF by overseeing all facilities of the office and being the first response on all IAAF enquiries including those relating to Block Exemption Regulation.
In her new role, among other duties she will be tasked with working on behalf of members to ensure that the rights of the independent aftermarket are protected under current UK and EU legislation and to assist in the development of new products and services to generate value for members.
She is also responsible for managing the IAAF website and assisting with the organisation of some of the key IAAF and Industry events including the Awards Dinner and Conference, Industry Briefing sessions, Golf Days and all relevant trade shows and exhibitions.
IAAF chief executive, Wendy Williamson, said: “Ann has been the organisational lynchpin since joining IAAF almost 20 years ago and in that time, she has developed a broad understanding of the independent automotive aftermarket and its policies.
“As Office Manager, Ann will play a key role in ensuring we have an efficient, operational structure in place to continue to support both our members and IAAF as a whole.”
