IVCC is delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Larkin as Head of Communications and External Relations.  Prior to joining IVCC, Chris was Director of Communications at The University of Salford and preceding this, held senior communication positions at Marks & Spencer, Nationwide Building Society and WPP’s public relations arm, Hill + Knowlton Strategies.   

Welcoming his appointment, Nick Hamon, IVCC CEO said: “Chris brings with him over 20 years’ communications experience from across private and public sector organisations.  He will play a lead role in raising awareness of IVCC’s global mission across key partners and stakeholder groups.  I am delighted to welcome Chris on board.”
