SELECT, the campaigning trade body for the electrotechnical industry in Scotland, has re-appointed Eric Rae as its president.
Eric, of E. Rae & Son, Fife Street in Turriff, has been influential in SELECT activity in Aberdeen and the North-East for many years. Elected to the post in 2015, he is now entering his second year of office.
He will maintain his full schedule of branch involvement and strategy discussions, as well as focusing on areas of interest such as training, employment affairs, health and safety and public sector procurement.
I am delighted to have been re-appointed to continue my work as SELECT president and carry on the organisation’s mission of seeking to influence legislation for the long-term benefit of the industry.
SELECT has done, and continues to do, sterling work to create industry conditions which enable member firms to both provide a quality service to their clients and to maintain the high standards that characterise electrical installation in Scotland and, of course, SELECT.
Newell McGuinness, managing director of SELECT, said
Eric s has proved himself to be an extremely able and conscientious president, putting the interests of our industry first at all times.
We are very pleased that he will be in post for another successful year, directing his energies to seeking and securing outcomes which create the infrastructure for a sustainable future not only for the industry but for the Scottish economy as a whole.
David Wright, Head of External Affairs at SELECT, said
Eric has been a strong supporter of the electrotechnical sector in Scotland for many years and has brought considerable influence and experience to the role of President. This will serve us well as we continue to campaign for statutory Regulation of the industry to protect Scotland’s householders from sub-standard work carried out by unqualified individuals.
