BMF Lobbyist Search

BMF begins search for new lobbyist

bmfBMF Government Relations Executive Chris Hodder is leaving at the end of March to join Rowan Public Affairs as Senior Public Affairs Manager.

He will be working with Rowan MD Craig Carey-Clinch on Motor Cycle Industry Association (MCI) public policy issues and supporting the Rowan team in other areas.

He has represented the BMF most ably over the last seven years, putting the motorcyclists point of view over to government in most of its many forms, serving as a director of FEMA for 2 years and also on the FIM Commission on Road Safety.

The BMF regards it as a great compliment to its effectiveness in lobbying that the industry should headhunt its latest recruit from the oldest riders rights organisation in the UK.

Chairman Roger Ellis said: “We will be very sorry to lose Chris; he has done a splendid job for us. We are pleased that he will continue to be involved with motorcycling and wish him all the best in his future career.”

Craig Carey-Clinch, MD of Rowan said: “Chris brings unique skills and experience to the Rowan team, given his successful track record at the BMF and his focused and dedicated work on motorcycle rider issues over previous years. We are delighted that he will be joining us to enhance the service and support that we provide to the MCI and to our other clients. We wish the BMF well in its search for a new public affairs specialist.”

The BMF will be looking to recruit a replacement for Chris as soon as is practicable.

Anna Zee, director of the BMF’s lobbying activity, said: “Chris will be a hard act to follow but I am sure there is someone out there who would love to give this a try and I look forward to meeting them.”
