Bickham takes trustees chair at IBEOctober 2014
Edward Bickham has agreed to become Chair of the Trustees of the Institute of Business Ethics. He succeeds Chris Moorhouse, who has served as IBE Chair since 2006.
Tim Melville-Ross, President of the IBE, welcomed the appointment: “Edward has given excellent support and encouragement to the Institute as a trustee and I am delighted that he has agreed to be Chair. I would like to thank Chris Moorhouse who has led the Institute through many changes to the successful organisation it is today.”
Chris Moorhouse commented: “It has been a great privilege to serve as a Trustee and Chair of the IBE, and I want to thank the Subscribers, Advisory Council, the IBE staff and my fellow trustees for their support. Because of this support the IBE has been able to make great progress. I am very pleased the trustees have selected Edward to take over as Chair and I am sure he will lead the IBE to greater success in achieving its charitable purpose.”
Bickham has worked with the IBE for many years, first as a representative of a subscriber company, and latterly as a trustee. “Over that time, we have seen business ethics taken more seriously, both by companies, and by the public. However, greater scrutiny has meant that corporate scandals continue to be uncovered, and the IBE’s practical help and advice is needed more than ever.” he added.
