The Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) has announced that George Lee will be taking over the role of Executive Officer, following the retirement of Roger Borer who has been in post for the last four years.
George is an experienced Trade Association executive having previously been CEO at Highways Term Maintenance Association (2017 to 2020) and Road Safety Markings Association (1997 to 2017), during which time he also founded stakeholder, public relations and communications consultancy Blue Symmetry.
George’s trade association experience has focused on directly representing sector business interests, establishing and delivering customer focused services, and building effective and sustainable cross sector communications and knowledge networks. This expertise is drawn from public policy, stakeholder management and media experience, developed throughout his career and is reflected in high-level interaction with government departments such as BEIS and key sector stakeholder groups and regulators.
Mr Lee said: “I am delighted to be taking on this new role with the BCIA. Building controls lie at the heart of a modern and energy efficient built environment and I aim to use my experience and expertise to ensure the skills and standards in this sector are maintained and continue to evolve.”
Terry Sharp, BCIA President, paid tribute to Roger Borer and welcomed Mr Lee’s appointment. “Roger Borer has been a tremendous asset to the BCIA during his time here and I would like to thank him for his hard work in helping us to meet our key aims and objectives. George Lee’s background in leadership and collaborative working will ensure the BCIA’s strategic plan is in safe hands for the foreseeable future and it is a pleasure to welcome him on board.”
