The Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) is pleased to announce the addition of three new members to the Management Committee. Following a vote by BCIA members, Sandy Damm, Terry Sharp and Paul Wetherfield have all been successfully appointed.

Terry Sharp, UK and Ireland Product Sales Manager at Johnson Controls, has worked in the controls industry for over 35 years. Terry’s expertise helps to bridge the gap between manufacturers and installers, to bring a rounded perspective to the challenges that are faced in today’s Building Management Systems (BMS) world.

Paul Wetherfield, CEO of Global Associates, has 15 years’ industry experience under his belt. Paul’s passion is driven by the lack of young engineers within the industry and as a result he’s shaped Global Associates around the development of young apprentices, which currently make up 15% of the workforce.

Sandy Damm, Managing Director of Sontay Ltd, has been employed within the building automation industry for over 15 years. Three years ago, Sandy launched the Sontay Academy, an education initiative which provides access to a wide range of courses designed to build knowledge, technical skills and contribute to CPD requirements.

Malcolm Anson, President of the BCIA says: “I am delighted to welcome three new members on board to join the BCIA Management Committee. Paul, Sandy and Terry will each bring something unique to the committee and are fully committed to addressing key industry challenges and strengthening the BCIA brand.”
