The Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) has appointed Graeme Rees as its new vice-president.
Rees replaces Terry Sharp who recently took over as president from Jon Belfield. He will support Sharp in building on the BCIA’s position as a leading influence on standards, professionalism and innovation for its members.
He is currently the UK and Ireland’s digital energy marketing manager for Schneider Electric and has been involved in the building controls industry for more than 30 years, after starting his career as a project engineer at Lidworth Ltd. He later moved on to Bristol Management Systems before spending 19 years at Trend Control Systems, where he worked his way up from regional field services manager to marketing director.
Rees said: “Having served on the management committee for more than a year I have seen at close hand the vital work the BCIA does for its members and tackling the various issues they face. I am very proud to have been appointed vice-president and I look forward to supporting Terry Sharp as we strive to continue moving the building controls industry forward in an ever-evolving sector.”
