APM has announced that chief executive Andrew Bragg will step down in December 2014 after 10 years at the helm.

APM president Tom Taylor said that Andrew Bragg had been an outstanding chief executive and that he would leave a lasting legacy.

Andrew Bragg said that leading APM through a period of successful transformation had been a professional privilege.

Since 2004, APMs individual membership has increased from 11,000 to over 21,000 with APM corporate membership rising from 250 to 550; APMs annual income has grown from 2.5m to over 7.4m; and the organisation has relocated to a new purpose-designed facility. APM also became the first ever UK professional body to gain the coveted Investors in Volunteers accreditation.

During the decade, APMs Body of Knowledge has undergone two major revisions; APMs re-designed website now attracts 530,000 unique annual visitors; and APM enjoys a leading social media presence within the profession.

APMs gold standard competence assessment has now recognised over 500 APM Registered Project Professionals since its launch in March 2011. Developed and launched collaboratively with 750k of government funding in 2012, APMs Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management exemplifies APMs established approach to pan-sector partnership working.

Andrew Braggs championing of APMs increasing engagement with International Project Management Association (IPMA) culminated in his election by his peers as IPMA Vice-President in November 2012.

This sustained drumbeat of delivery, together with APMs increasing engagement and influence within public, private and third sectors based on APMs advocacy of ever-increasing professionalism, enabled APM to apply for chartered status on behalf of the UK profession of project management. Andrew Bragg will be fully involved in APMs participation as Interested Party in the July 2014 Judicial Review of the unanimous recommendation reached during 2013 by a committee of the Privy Council that a Royal Charter should be granted to APM.

Recruitment for Andrew Braggs successor will start immediately.
