NARM, the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers, has appointed Scott Leeder to the position of Chairman, following a vote at the association’s recent AGM.
As Market Director GB&I for VELUX and, previously, Sales Director at Glazing Vision (both NARM member companies), Scott brings broad experience to the role, as well as a real passion for daylighting and the contributions it makes to building energy efficiency, sustainability and human wellbeing.
Scott says: “A high level of daylight delivers a ‘wow’ factor beyond almost any other design elements in a building – and that’s even before you consider the massive advantages in terms of energy saving, emissions reductions and healthier living spaces.
“A key role for NARM, is to communicate these benefits and create a wider understanding within the construction industry and the general public.
“Looking around me at NARM meetings, it’s apparent that many people, once they become part of the rooflight industry, tend to stay with it throughout their careers. Speaking from my own experience, this is because being part of a community that exists to deliver a sustainable and life-enhancing product is extremely rewarding.
“It’s a bit addictive! I have two young children who are, like many of their same age, very engaged with the sustainability agenda. I’m keen to explore the potential of future generations who can benefit from a career in this industry and I believe that NARM can support ways to achieve this.”
Tom Ogilvie, NARM’s outgoing Chairman (below), comments: “We’re delighted that Scott has taken up this new role. His commitment, energy and experience will serve NARM well as it looks to take on new and existing challenges for the rooflighting industry.”
The recent NARM AGM was one of three meetings held over two days at Swindon’s National Self Build & Renovation Centre. As always, progress was made by NARM’s very active sub-committees covering technical specification, legislation, safety and communications.
