The Business Continuity Institute has announced that Tim Janes Hon. FBCI will be the new vice chair of the BCI Board of Directors. The post was filled by a vote of the members of the Institute’s Global Membership Council.

Tim takes over from James McAlister FBCI who becomes chair following the end of David James-Brown FBCI’s two years in charge.

Tim, a Director at Risk Management Design in Australia, has previously served as one of the membership directors on the BCI Board, and as the representative for Australasia on the BCI's Global Membership Council.

Tim commented: "This is an exciting time to be elected as the new vice chair of the BCI. We have a new executive director and great plans for enhanced member services and international growth. Recent world events have shown how political, social and economic ‘certainties’ can be overturned. I think these conditions together, will present many opportunities for our profession to show how we help organizations to manage through unfamiliar, disruptive challenges. My goal is to help the BCI to provide practical and effective support for all members in this dynamic global environment."
