A New IAP Team for a New Future

Alastair Revell, the new Director General of The Institution of Analysts and Programmers, has announced that a new executive structure has been created to lead the specialist professional body forward into the next phase of its development. The move creates a number of executive posts designed to take the thirty-year old Institution into its next decade. Mr Revell said: “The Institution has some very ambitious plans. I have been appointed to realise these plans and the management team I am announcing today will help me fulfil them. The new Executive Board will be critical in driving the Institution forward. We are opening a new chapter in our history today and we are looking at a very exciting future.”

The new team includes:

  • Robin Jones, Director for Professionalism and Education
  • Paul Lynham, Director for Member Engagement with responsibility for improving the services the Institution offers its members
  • John Ellis, Technical and Communications Director for the Institution, responsible for its ICT requirements.

He has written some nineteen books, which have been translated into every major European language and has contributed articles to numerous technical magazines. He also used to have his own column in the French edition of Scientific American.

Paul has extensive experience as a freelance software developer. He has worked in a wide variety of sectors. He has been the technical director of a company producing call centre software as well as a lecturer in software for the Open University.
