Claire Curran, managing director of Linaker, the company that specialises in the creation and maintenance of tailor-made business environments, has 25 years of experience in the building services industry. She said that her business and marketing degree, financial qualifications and MBA, was ‘topped off by hanging around plant rooms for far too long.’
Bob Lane of Roperhurst, a leading plastic fabrication and environmental engineering specialist, has worked at Roperhurst for 41 years and has progressed from the shop floor to managing director. He has been an active BESA member on a regional and national level for 20 years. Highlights include tenure as a regional chair, eight years on the BESA Council, two years on the BESA Board and participation on multiple specialty groups.
BESA president John Norfolk has congratulated them both on their election. He said: “It is increasingly important for the Association that we have the broadest possible range of skills and specialist knowledge in our leadership team so that we can fully represent our diverse membership. Claire and Bob bring a wealth of commercial and technical know-how that will be invaluable in shaping our strategy now and far into the future.”
