SNIPEF welcomes 97th President
Neil Hadden has been unveiled as the new President for 2019/20 of the Scottish and Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers’ Federation (SNIPEF).
Elected at the organisations’ Annual General Meeting last month, Neil is the 97th President of SNIPEF. A long-serving plumber, he joined SNIPEF in 1985 and has represented the Banff & Moray Local Association on the SNIPEF Council since 2010.
His firm, Neil Hadden Plumbing & Heating, is based in Elgin.
Upon taking on the role of President, Neil urged members to get more involved with their local association and the wider industry.
He said: “I am honoured to take on the role of SNIPEF President for the next year. Like our members, I have experienced first-hand the challenges facing plumbing and heating businesses and look forward to working with SNIPEF staff and Council members on new initiatives to engage members and provide them with quality representation and services to help their businesses grow.
“I believe we need to continue to find better ways of engaging with our membership base and I strongly encourage our members to become more involved with their local association and decision making in the industry. Our organisation and the industry will only get stronger if we have actively engaged and involved members.”
Along with Neil’s appointment, Robin Hall was elected as Vice President, Jim Butter as Junior Vice President while Gordon Matheson became Immediate Past President.
