David Stacey has been appointed as the new president of the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers, with a new team of executive officers.

Originally trained as a civil engineer, David has accumulated over 20 years of experience and expertise in the sales and marketing of construction products. David is now product sales director for the UK and Ireland at dormakaba.

David commented on his recent election: “It’s a huge honour to be chosen to lead such a prestigious organisation in the architectural ironmongery industry.

“We must recruit the right team to support the excellent head office team of Douglas Masterson, Rachel Tipton and Davina King. We will be recruiting a new director to lead the Guild, a new marketing manager and a new membership officer.

“We must also finish what we’ve started on education, continuing to invest in the GAI’s online Education Hub which has already revolutionised the GAI’s highly respected learning programme.

“And we must continue to support and develop the internationalisation of the Guild and our growing membership overseas, particularly in the face of an increasingly globalised construction regulations environment.”

The president is also part of the ‘One Future Vision’ group, led by past president Maria Powell which is working towards a more unified, professional body to create the strongest possible future for both the Guild, which represents the interest of Architectural Ironmongers, which represents the individuals in the industry and promotes ongoing professional development to door hardware specialists.

The AGM has also ratified the appointment of Julian Newman of Oxford Ironmongery Ltd as the new vice president, and Mario Del-Signore of CESuk as treasurer.
