BESA chief executive steps down

Following a recent cycling accident, Paul McLaughlin is stepping down as chief executive of the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA).

Bruce Kirton, deputy chief executive of BESA.

BESA President Tim Hopkinson commented: “Whilst Paul is expected to make a full recovery, following complications to injuries received in a cycling accident where he broke several vertebrae, he is stepping down from his role as chief executive of BESA to focus on his recovery.” 

He added: “In the past two years the association has been focussed on modernising, ensuring our ongoing relevance to both the industry and our members. The increasing profile of the BESA brand, and the successful launch of the inaugural BESA National Conference and Awards at the end of October are just two examples of how we are repositioning ourselves to cement our place in the industry for the next 100 years.”

Building on these solid foundations, BESA’s deputy chief executive Bruce Kirton, in partnership with BESA’s officer team, all of whom are members, will oversee the day to day running of the association while the search for a successor is underway.

Mr Hopkinson concluded: “The association wishes Paul a full and speedy recovery, and we are confident that Bruce will ensure the smooth running of the association whilst we seek the right chief executive for the next chapter in our association’s illustrious history.”
