This year we said goodbye to a couple of Board members, who moved onto to new opportunities. They had been a part of aimm for many years and have during their time on the Board, been a great support and have helped shape our direction, so thanks to them for all their help.
Although it was sad to see them go we are pleased to welcome our new Board members who have stepped up to replace them, and look forward to working with them over the next couple of years. Both our new Board members are from the companies who had already been part of the Board, so provides a nice continuity.
Please welcome our new Board members:
