BSRIA has announced that Anne King MBE, its retiring marketing director, has been awarded Honorary Membership.

 

This is only the 10th time this honour has been awarded in the 60 year history of the Association and has been made to recognise an extraordinary contribution to the Association and the promotion of best practice within the building services industry.

 

Anne first joined BSRIA in 1978 from a major petrochemical company. She quickly became involved with the Stats and Forecasting Unit and set about revolutionising the department, turning it into the Worldwide Market Intelligence division which today is recognised as a truly global leader in the provision of market intelligence information for the building services industry.

 

In her role leading the membership and marketing teams, Anne was responsible for the implementation of BSRIA’s first CRM system, the development of the BSRIA website, the development of new products and services for members including the successful BSRIA Networks. She has also been active in the promotion of new processes such as soft landings and BIM.

 

Anne was appointed to the Board in 1998. During this time BSRIA has seen its turnover grow to £12 million, with overseas offices located in Beijing and Chicago.

 

On making the presentation Tom Smith, the BSRIA chairman, said: “I first worked with Anne on a project over 15 years ago. Now in my second term as chairman I remain impressed by her hard work and commitment to BSRIA and the industry. Anne has been integral to the development of BSRIA and should feel rightly proud of her accomplishments and for those accomplishments I would like to thank her on behalf of the Board, the Members and the Building Services industry”

 

BSRIA chief executive Julia Evans said: “As BSRIA celebrates its 60th year, Anne has played a crucial role in the development of the new 2025 Strategy, so putting into place the foundation for further growth and development, supporting our members and the industry and in itself a wonderful conclusion to the magnificent contribution Anne has made to BSRIA over the years”.
