Colin has over 40 years working for the roofing and cladding industry and now manages his own consultancy, CY Associates, where he provides sales, marketing, technical commentary, research and coaching across the sector.
Prior to this, Colin was Director of Sales and Marketing at SFS Group, a manufacturer of product fasteners for both metal and single-ply roofs, and during this time was a Director for both MCRMA and the Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA).
More recently, Colin has worked closely with NFRC to develop a flagship pilot competency accreditation for rainscreen cladding supervisors.
“It is an honour to be a trustee of the NFRC Charitable Trust and give something back to the industry I have worked in most of my life. In my time as a trustee, I hope to use the knowledge and experience I have gained through my career to support the Charity's objectives. What makes our industry great is the people who work in it, and I have often repeated the phrase, ‘most of the people I have worked with in our industry are ordinary people doing extraordinary things’.”
