ALEC MURRAY has been named as the Retail Motor Industry (RMI) chairman for a second time, after he took over from acting chairman Colin Parlett.
Murray last held the post between 2006 and 2008. He says: “I am delighted to be back as chairman, and look forward to supporting the industry through the challenging times ahead. The RMI’s proposed restructure will ensure it represents its members’ concerns at all levels and across all sectors.” Parlett is pleased that Murray has taken on the role. “His previous knowledge of the RMI, coupled with his experience in the industry will prove crucial in steering the federation in the future.
“We look forward to working closely with him again and seeing the RMI move forward and thrive,” he says.
Previously, Murray was the MD of Ford Credit Britain, chief executive of Quicks Group and deputy chairman of Caledonia Motor Group, as well as chairman of the NFDA in the mid-1990s and then between 2005 and 2006. ■
