CIPR members vote Lionel Zetter as President-Elect

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) has announced today that Lionel Zetter FCIPR will be President in 2014.

In a closely fought two-way election, Lionel, who was up against Miti Ampoma FCIPR, polled 54% of the vote. Lionel will serve on the CIPR Executive Board in 2013 as President-Elect alongside next year's President Sue Wolstenholme.

Lionel Zetter
It is an honour to be elected as the CIPR's President for 2014. I look forward to working with the CIPR's hugely professional staff, and to representing our members once again.
Lionel Zetter
Sally Sykes FCIPR, President of the CIPR
I am sure Lionel will lead the CIPR very effectively and build upon the work done by the team and the Board in championing the PR profession and advancing professional standards. It has been a pleasure to work with Lionel already on CIPR Board and he will bring experience, enthusiasm and commitment to the role of President Elect, becoming President in 2014. I wish Lionel every success.
Sally Sykes FCIPR, President of the CIPR

CIPR Members also voted on seven seats on the Institute's Council. These will be taken by Professor Anne Gregory FCIPR, Deborah Copeland MCIPR, Stuart Bruce MCIPR, Pete Biggs MCIPR, Dan Large MCIPR, Eva Maclaine FCIPR and Sandra Bauer MCIPR.

Lionel - Congratulations. The indutry needs a strong united front which it doesn't have at the moment and which I am sure you support and will help achieve. This will mean that politicians, journalists and other organisations cannot generally run rings around us. You have my full support in this endeavour, as both a fellow of the CIPR and council member of the PRCA. I hope at the end of you tenure we will have just one organisation and one acrnymn but lets avoid the Public Relations Industry Group. Tom Curtin FCIPR)
