Promoting inclusion and collaboration in the roofing industry will be the priority for the incoming President of NFRC, Kevin M Taylor FIoR.
Kevin M Taylor FIoR of BRC Industrial Roofing Ltd was elected as the 55th President of the UK largest roofing trade association, NFRC, at their first-ever virtual AGM on Thursday 6th August 2020.
He takes over from Steve Revell, of Skyline Roofing Group, who will become the Immediate Past President, after serving his two-year term as President.
Colin McCorquodale of Archibald McCorquodale & Son Ltd was also elected, and Mark Mitchell of Jarvis and Womack Ltd re-elected, as Vice Presidents.
Commenting on his appointment as President of NFRC, Kevin M Taylor said:
“It is an honour to be elected as the President of NFRC and represent the industry I love. I look forward to working with NFRC's Management Board, Chief Executive and staff to further NFRC’s mission to promote roofing excellence, building on the firm foundations left by my predecessors. I have always said roofing is unique; it is both an art and a science, and therefore it is an industry full of opportunity.”
“I am passionate about professionalising our sector. However, professionalism is not just about technical standards and health and safety, but about culture too. A professional industry is an inclusive industry, that is fair and respects people of all backgrounds. I, therefore, plan to make Fairness, Inclusion and Respect a key priority in my time as President.”
“The Covid crisis has shown what the construction industry can do when it comes together and collaborates. This is something I believe should continue, and I hope to work across the roofing sector with other trade associations, training groups and industry bodies — we are stronger together.”
