Andy Clarke, chief executive, Asda, became President of IGD on 1 January 2015. The president chairs our industry leaders’ forum, the Policy Issues Council (PIC), which is a think tank that supports our work programmes.
PIC meets regularly to engage on several projects each year. These projects deliver important improvements across the industry, in areas where IGD members can work together for public benefit.
IGD is delivering genuine public benefit
“I am delighted to take on the mantle of IGD President and continue the fantastic work that Fiona, Joanne and the team have delivered.
"In my 30 years in this industry I've never known a period as challenging and exciting as we're currently in. The pace of change is phenomenal and the UK is leading the way in many areas. The IGD makes a real difference to our sector and to the UK economy – be it through our output, job creation or skills – and I'm hugely proud to have the opportunity to lead it."
Andy Clarke, Chief Executive, Asda and IGD President
