CEO of The Bathroom Manufactures Association (BMA) Yvonne Orgill has joined The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) Advisory Board.
Orgill, who departs her current role at the BMA later this year after 13 years at the helm, joins the BiKBBI board in a move to develop the relationship between the two industry organisations.
Both the BiKBBI and BMA share values of raising standards, promoting educational opportunities and increasing compliance within the KBB industry.
Both organisations support collaborative working strategies to benefit their members, the industry and consumers.
BiKBBI CEO Damian Walters said: “I cannot even begin to express how happy I am with Yvonne’s board appointment.
“A respected, highly experienced, much loved and proven industry leader, Yvonne, from the very beginning, has been a guiding light for BiKBBI.
“There aren’t many people with experience of leading a successful trade association, so capturing Yvonne’s experience is the footballing equivalent of a cup final thirty yard, top right screamer into the back of the net”!
Walters added: “Yvonne was one of the very first people I spoke to 15 years ago when we first scoped the prospect of an institute for installation.
“Since then, our relationship has become stronger and stronger, primarily as both organisations share the same values.”
Yvonne Orgill added: “I am thrilled to have been approached to join the BIKBBI Board and one I look forward to.
“I am a firm believer in strong partnerships that can come together with the same objective.
“BiKBBI and BMA have the same vision, ‘compliant product, installed correctly, for the benefit of the consumer’, a big ask that is not unachievable!”
Orgill, who is set to lead development of The Unified Water Label, joins a growing board of advisors at BiKBBI, including Patron Stephen Metcalfe MP, former Jewson Director Jon Thelwell and PWC financial graduate Karen Stanley.”
