The council welcomes Neil Croxson, CEO of The Parts Alliance who has taken over from Peter Sephton; Jonathan Eden, Managing Director of FPS; Andy Hamilton, CEO of Euro Car Parts who replaces Martin Gray; Joe Howard, Associate Director at Boswell Aftermarket and Alistair Preston, Founder of WhoCanFixMyCar.com.

(L-R): Terry Knox, MD of CD Group and IAAF President; Neil Croxson, COO UK Parts Alliance; Al Preston, Co-founder WCFMC; Joe Howard, Associate Director, Boswell and Darren Miller, Commercial Director TTC and CV Chairman
Joe Howard’s appointment is the first of its kind, being the first time that IAAF has elected a service member onto Council. Preston has been co-opted on to Council for the next twelve months to assist with some of the digital challenges currently being faced by the sector.
The IAAF Council is a voluntary group of aftermarket individuals made up of the Federation’s representatives, including distributors, suppliers, buying groups, service providers and garages who come together regularly to debate industry issues and IAAF policy, to each offer an outlook on how the independent aftermarket can continue to thrive and develop.
Recently appointed IAAF president, Terry Knox said: “At a time of great transition and challenge for the automotive aftermarket, IAAF’s role in supporting the industry and its members is more important than ever, and the welcome addition of our new Council members will help us take forward this task.”
