Queen as chief executive officer, effective Jan. 1, 2019. Queen is an accomplished leader with more than 40 years of industry experience. His long-term vision for IIA centers is around Story-Worthy customer service and technical leadership serving a diversified group of promising sub-sectors and a commitment to aggressively growing IIA for years to come.

"I am excited and honored to take on this role," says Queen. "I look forward to continuing to build on the vision and values that define IIA and set us apart from others by leading through focus on service, integrity and technical expertise. Our success to date reflects the joint vision John and I shared to build a national inspection, testing and certification company with a commitment of creating a Story-Worthy experience for every customer."

With the appointment of Queen as CEO, John Cote, IIA's co-founder and former CEO, has transitioned to the role of chairman. In this role, Cote will focus on acquisitions, advise on strategy and organic growth, and share best practices with IIA from other Sunny River Management (SRM) platforms.

"Harold has been a trusted partner since IIA's founding, back when IIA was just an idea, and is a key reason why IIA has grown so rapidly to where it is today," says Cote. "Harold's appointment to CEO helps clarify our roles and will allow IIA to continue its growth trajectory as he will be focused on leading IIA, while the Sunny River team and I can focus on acquisitions and strategy, working closely with Harold on those fronts to continue IIA's growth."
