Dimovski, who is currently director of sustainability at Boyd Group, based in Chicago, made a well-awaited comeback to the industry during SEMA this year after a 12-month absence, reconnecting with his global social network of followers and associates. Recognised as one of the industry’s leading innovators due to his ongoing pioneering work in plastic repairs, 3D printing and talent engagement, as well as the adoption of digital technologies such as extended realty (XR), Dimovski will re-join IBIS after taking a break from all industry and business commitments to focus on his move from Australia to the USA to join the Boyd Group in 2021.

“I am excited to be back working with the extended IBIS family,” said Mr Dimovski, who went on to highlight the importance of having a forward-thinking body such as IBIS to provide the industry with a global platform to drive, share, and connect on key topics.

IBIS Worldwide CEO Jason Moseley said: “We look forward to collaborating with Mario again, with whom we have a rich history of working together. Mario is a natural thinker and problem solver who is passionate about the industry. He offers a high level of innovative energy, and his views are respected by the industry and his fellow Ambassadors.”
