Independent Garage Association (IGA) chairman, Rob Collison

The Independent Garage Association (IGA) has appointed Rob Collison as its new chairman.

The organisation, which represents the independent garage sector in the UK, said that Collison would be assuming the post from this month after Colin Parlett recently stepped down after more than a decade at the helm.

Collison is managing director of Collison Motoring Services Ltd, an MOT, service and diagnostic garage near Portsmouth.

He has worked in the motor industry for 30 years and has sat on the IGA Executive Committee for over 10 years.

Collinson said: “I am truly honoured to be elected chairman and believe the IGA represents the very best of our industry.

“Now more than ever, it is important that the sector unites under the IGA banner as it continues to operate in an environment of legislative changes and the coronavirus pandemic.”

IGA chief executive, Stuart James, said: “Rob’s enthusiasm for the independent sector and IGA activities is so important as the entire industry faces a very challenging time.

“I look forward to working closely with Rob to continue protecting the rights of the UK independent garage sector and drive through new initiatives that provide what garages need to keep fixing cars.”
