Ed Harrison, Chairman of IAB Australia said: "We are delighted that Paul will be able to work us behind the scenes, ensuring that we continue the momentum behind all that Alice has achieved during her tenure. Paul is a safe pair of hands and very well qualified to assist us during the recruitment and appointment of our next CEO."
