Tim Whiteman is stepping down from the position of managing director and CEO of the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) after 15 years in the position.

Former IPAF president Andy Studdert will act as interim CEO to provide continuity as Whiteman hands over and while the search for a new CEO is conducted.

The IPAF board recruited Whiteman as MD in 2004 to take on the challenge of implementing the “I” in IPAF - to make the organisation truly international. At that time the Federation had around 400 members, most of which were in the UK, and earned 95% of its revenue from the UK.

Today more than 45% of income is from outside the home market, even though UK income and membership has not stopped growing since 2004. Today, the Federation has almost 1,400 members in nearly 70 countries and is in sound financial health, said IPAF. 

Whiteman told Access International that that he is happy and in good health and that he would work to ensure a smooth transition from his departure to the appointment of the next CEO of IPAF. He added that the IPAF team would continue to deliver an outstanding service to its members and the industry.

Whiteman said in a statement, “It has been a privilege to work with the dedicated IPAF members and team members around the world – the passion to deliver the safe and effective use of powered access motivates so many people and IPAF shares their knowledge and experience to help keep people safe.

“However, after 15 years, I’m looking forward to a change and I thank the board for its support in making this happen,” he added
