NFRC Head of Technical, Bob Richardson commented:
“I am delighted that Simon has been shortlisted for this prestigious award, in recognition of everything he has done to promote quality in roof training to the next generation. Simon doesn’t do it for the glory, but for his desire to inspire others and after 40 years in the industry, he is very deserving of this recognition.”
“Simon had critical involvement in establishing the first-ever Roofing Hub and has advocated for the industry in schools and colleges across the country.
