The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) has welcomed Jason Morgan, managing director of HPC as its new president. Mr Morgan, who has been BCAS vice-president since June this year, takes over the role from James Maziak, managing director of Maziak Compressors.
The next few months will mark a crucial moment in the society’s history, as Brexit negotiations continue and industry is poised for the impact this may bring. Mr Morgan and the board will continue to provide insight to its members and users and to work with other trade bodies to lobby on behalf of industry.
Mr Morgan said: “I’m proud to have been given this opportunity to build on the great work already undertaken by James and the team.”
He said that training would continue to be a focus during his tenure, including continuing the work of the training and development committee on the new Trailblazer Apprenticeship initiative.
He announced he would also be going out “on the road” to meet members. “I’m keen to work closer with our membership and will be taking BCAS on the road, to gain a greater understanding of the services the society should be providing to help members provide best value to their customers.”
In addition Stephen Wright, managing director of Thorite, and Allan Dolby, managing director of Direct Air have been elected to the board, following their roles as distribution committee members, increasing distribution member board representation.
