B&ES presents Peter Hoyle with Distinguished Service Award

Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES) past president, Peter Hoyle, has become only the sixth person in the association's 109-year history to receive its Distinguished Service Award.
B&ES presents Peter Hoyle with Distinguished Service Award
Presenting the award to Mr Hoyle, B&ES chief executive, Roderick Pettigrew, explained that the Distinguished Service Award was conferred upon 'those who have rendered extra-special service to the Association and its activities' - adding that the roll-call of previous recipients represented 'a genuine B&ES hall of fame'.

Mr Hoyle was the only president (of what was then the HVCA) since the Second World War to have served two consecutive terms of office - 'to say nothing of his subsequent prominence on the international stage, as president of GCI-UICP, the European umbrella body for our sector,' Mr Pettigrew added.

He went on to recall that Mr Hoyle had been a member of the Council of the Association for over 20 years and had also served on the Membership, Operative, Finance and House Committees, as a director of B&ES subsidiary Piper Enterprises and as chairman of its training provider Building Engineering Services Training Ltd (BEST).

Mr Pettigrew said: 'In his inaugural address back in the year 2000, Peter insisted that quality begins and ends with people - and that any organisation, business or industry sector can only be as good as the individuals who are involved in its operations.

'Peter Hoyle can rest assured that - as far as this association is concerned - he is one of the most significant contributors of all time.'
