Firstly, thank you to all those who helped to elect me and to Mick for his hard work over the last year. With great honour, I continue the tradition of CU Phosco Lighting in supporting the HEA and the industry as a whole, as CU Phosco was one of the founding members of ASLEC, which amalgamated with HEMSA to become the HEA.
I am passionate about the people involved in our industry. I feel that we need to continue to raise the standard of operative skills and further improve the level of competency of our next generation of supervisors, managers, and leaders. Through this, we can aspire to exceed the existing markets' requirements and aid access to new ones.
I know first-hand that we have been and still are going through challenging times, but it is a tribute to the industry how we have adopted and adapted to meet these challenges.
With my vast experience in contracting and manufacturing/supply, I feel that I will add value to the HEA to better the highways electrical industry and, notably, to the HEA and all its members. So, rest assured, I will do my utmost to meet the exacting standards set by my predecessors.
