EMW Chairman steps down
Ian Morris has announced he will be stepping down as Chairman of EMW in September this year. Ian has been Chairman for 14 years and is a founder of the firm – the “M” of “EMW”. He will still be fully involved in the firm’s future and will also be working alongside the London, Gatwick and Milton Keynes Principals on the continued development of all 3 of our offices. The role of Chairman will be taken up by Nick Lloyd who is a Principal in our Corporate team.
Ian says “It’s been my utmost pleasure to be Chairman for the last 14 years and I’m so proud of what EMW has become. All great things come to an end and it was important to me to step down as Chairman whilst somewhere near the top of my game. I wish Nick the very best in his new role, being Chairman of EMW is a great privilege and I know that Nick understands this”.
Nick joined the firm in 2000 and has been a member of our Operational Board since 2008.

He sits on the boards of client companies and is a trustee of the Parks Trust.
Commenting on his upcoming role Nick said “Ian has been a superb Chairman for the last 14 years, driving profound changes in that time. With Ian’s continued support and input, I am determined that EMW will continue to flourish, to be different, to take on new challenges and to grow into an even better business to work with and for.”
