In conjunction with her current role at Codelocks, Jo has served as vice chair for the IAI. Prior to this, she served as chairman for the South East region. Her experience holds her in good stead as a replacement for Mario Del-Signore.

Speaking of her appointment, Jo said: “I hope that as chair of the Institute, I can play a role in changing preconceptions about the industry and encourage the next generation of talent to seek a career in our ever-changing sector.

“This is a forward-looking organisation, committed to professional standards and raising the profile of Registered Architectural Ironmongers. The Institute is its members, and I want the members to know that I’m here to listen to their thoughts and ideas for taking the IAI forward.”

“Jo’s appointment is excellent news for both the IAI and Codelocks,” commented Colin Campbell, managing director, Codelocks. “As a business we’re leading the industry in introducing new access control technology and Jo’s knowledge will be instrumental in improving the market’s understanding of the capabilities and benefits of new approaches to access.”

Mario Del-Signore, outgoing chair of the IAI, stated: “Jo has already been recognised for her commitment to improving communication and increasing engagement among members in her role as vice chair and in her previous position as chairman of the South East region.

“I have no doubts that she will continue to help to take the Institute from strength to strength.”
