She is the first woman to take up the role for the organisation, which promotes best practice and shares information with members on the latest technology and developments within the concrete drilling industry.

The association was established in 1995 and means Julie’s presidency will fall during the organisation’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

Ms White said: “I am thrilled to have been elected as a vice president of the International Association of Concrete Drillers & Sawers. It’s a role I am very much looking forward to because I am a big believer in the industry – throughout the world – working together for the good of each other.

“Of course, business is competitive but if our industry is to continue to break new ground we must share what we do well, advances in technology and look at how we bring through new blood. I have always been a huge advocate of the association – my father played a role in it in the past – because I believe in what it is trying to achieve for the good of our sector.”
