Head of Technical Sales and Support at Forbo, reflects on a busy year, serving as President of the CFA (Contract Flooring Association).
"When I was voted in as CFA President for a two-year duration back in May 2018, it was a great honour to be acknowledged by my flooring trade peers."
The first (and continuous!) challenge is fitting my new CFA responsibilities in with my day job at Forbo. I wanted to tenure to be as hands-on as possible to support the excellent work of the CFA and I wish to thank Forbo Flooring and my colleagues for their support and encouragement in allowing me to engage with CFA activities as much as possible.
"It's a role that still excites me, after a full year in office, but I must admit, at the outset I perhaps didn't fully understand what lay ahead."
Other regular responsibilities are to chair the CFA Manufacturers Committee Meetings, chair Cleaning and Maintenance sub-committee and represent the CFA on the British Standard Committee for Textile Flooring. I also represent the CFA at the annual Recoflor Awards, held this year at The Belfry in the Midlands.
