BPMA announces new president03 January 2019

The new president of the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) has been announced as Richard Harden (pictured), managing director of Wilo UK Ltd.

The role was officially passed on at the BPMA Annual General Meeting, following the departure of previous president, Duncan Lewis, from the industry. Lewis had completed a one-year tenure as president, before handing the baton onto his successor.

Steve Schofield, director and chief executive of the BPMA, commented: “This is a great accolade and one that reflects the continuing efforts that Richard makes to raise the profile of the industry in general and to tackle the tough issues that it faces today.

“The BPMA has enjoyed the support and engagement of some very talented people at its helm over the years, and we are delighted to now have Richard join that impressive line-up. I look forward to working with him as we continue to drive the association forward.”

Harden said: “Being elected as president of the BPMA is a great honour and to take on the role in these somewhat difficult times will no doubt be challenging. Brexit is clearly a very important subject with potential opportunities and threats for our industry, but I am sure with the help and support of BPMA staff, its Board and its Council we will meet this challenge.”
