Following a vote by BCIA members, Terry Sharp, Paul Wetherfield and Sandy Damm have all been successfully appointed.
Terry Sharp, UK and Ireland product sales manager at Johnson Controls, has worked in the controls industry for over 35 years. His expertise helps to bridge the gap between manufacturers and installers, to bring a rounded perspective to the challenges that are faced in today’s Building Management Systems (BMS) world.
Paul Wetherfield, chief executive of Global Associates, has 15 years’ industry experience under his belt. His passion is driven by the lack of young engineers within the industry and, as a result, he’s shaped Global Associates around the development of young apprentices, which currently make up 15 percent of the workforce.
Sandy Damm, managing director of Sontay, has been employed in the building automation industry for over 15 years. Three years ago, Mr Damm launched the Sontay Academy, an education initiative which provides access to a wide range of courses designed to build knowledge and technical skills and contribute to CPD requirements.
BCIA president Malcolm Anson stated: “I am delighted to welcome three new members on board to join the BCIA Management Committee. Paul, Sandy and Terry will each bring something unique to the committee and are fully committed to addressing key industry challenges and strengthening the BCIA brand.”
