has completed a strategic review which will see its associate
member tier scrapped from the association.
As a result, director of associate members Bill Warren will be
leaving the organisation in May.
RAMP says that the decision has been taken to focus on the
development of its full member programme and the existing associate
members have been invited to join the group as full members.
Managing director John Rice says:"It is widely believed that
packagers who focus on quality and efficiency will be best placed
to survive these challenging times and research has shown that
RAMP's brand is recognised for both quality and exclusivity. "
"Whilst the current market is undoubtedly challenging, it will also
throw up many significant opportunities for RAMP and its members. I
foresee mergers and alignments that we will be extremely well
placed to take advantage of. I am sure our core values will ensure
success and RAMP will be incredibly well placed for a market upturn
whenever that may happen. After many conversations with our key
business partners I see a very bright future for the group whilst
adding serious value to the broker community".
