Chartered Institute of Credit Management unveils Royal Charter PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 12 March 2015

The Lord Lieutenant of Rutland, Lawrence Howard, was in attendance to formally unveil the Royal Charter granted to the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM) on Tuesday.

Speaking at the ceremony, Lawrence Howard said this was the first time he had presented a Charter as Her Majesty The Queen’s Representative: “To attain a Royal Charter in this day and age is a truly great privilege and the amount of work that must have been done by the chief executive, Philip King, and his staff is tremendous.

“I am particularly proud that this Chartered Institute is based here in Rutland; even though it is a tiny county we have a huge amount to offer, and now even more so.”

CICM President Dr Stephen Baister FCICM, the Chief Registrar of Bankruptcy added: “I would like to give thanks to all the staff at the CICM Headquarters for the very hard work that they have put in to getting the Institute to the place it is, the product of which is today’s ceremony.”

The current CICM Chair, Bryony Pettifor FCICM (Grad) proposed the toast.

The ceremony was attended by a large group of credit management professionals and senior members of the CICM past and present including Brenda Linger, Stuart Hopewell, Trevor Phillips, Glen Bullivant, Charlie Robertson, Laurie Beagle, Larry Coltman, Victoria Herd and David Thornley.

Professor Robert Turner FCICM – former CICM President and Her Majesty The Queen's Remembrancer – was also present alongside a large number of branch Chairs, local business people, councillors, CICM Corporate Partners and other key suppliers to the Chartered Institute. Other guests included executives from professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals and The Foundation of Science & Technology.

The Lord Lieutenant wished all CICM members future success, a theme that was echoed by Philip King: “The Chartered Institute and its members have a proud heritage and an exciting future ahead,” he said.
