STOP PRESS: IPR awards Lavelle honorary fellowship
Outgoing IPR executive director John Lavelle has been made the
institute’s 21st honorary fellow in recognition of his contribution to
the IPR’s work. Lavelle joined as executive director 14 years ago from
frozen food firm Findus, where he was general manager. During his
tenure, IPR membership has doubled to 5,600. His successor, Colin
Farrington, officially takes over from Lavelle next month.
