Ben Hirst, joint managing director of Horizon Platforms, and representing the Access Alliance, was elected vice-chairman.
“This new UK Council will devote itself to UK issues and will be a force to help the UK powered access industry move forward,” said Peter Douglas. “IPAF has grown internationally over the last few years and there has at times not been enough resources dedicated to UK-specific issues. The forming of this council will change that.”
“The forming of the UK Council is extremely significant for IPAF and something that we have been working towards in the last years,” said IPAF CEO Tim Whiteman. “The move is intended to make sure that today’s international IPAF is still fully relevant to the needs of UK members.”
