Crikey, Chris Kempt - BIMA Exec!

Well what a turn up for the books... last night at the BIMA AGM I got voted in to the executive!

Needless to say I am completely blown away by this and very grateful for the opportunity that BIMA have given me to get involved. As anyone who knows me will testify I have been in a deep love affair with this industry for many years now so this chance to contribute to its future development is something that I feel it my responsibility to grasp with both hands. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to our first meeting.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank the people that voted for me despite my faltering speech, exiting BIMA chair Paul Walsh without whose massive support over the last few months (both with my work on the Awards and Kempt) I would have been lost without and all of the Executive who have been so supportive of my ideas to redevelop the BIMA Awards, it’s a real shame that some of them are giving up their positions this year it would have been a privilege to work with them.

Happily though some amazing candidates have stepped up to the plate to fill the very large boots and again I’m thrilled to be part of what is sure to be an amazing team. You can read all about them on the BIMA site but I’ll close by saying hearty congratulations to our incoming chair Justin Cooke who will, I have no doubt, do a brilliant job.
