Senior business manager and engineer Gary Worrall has become the new President of the engineering services trade association ECA.
The CEO of Lorne Stewart PLC’s engineering division takes over the presidency from Jim Pridham, who has played a key role during the past 12 months, most notably through his promotion of industry training and apprenticeships.
Gary said: “As someone who is passionate about electrical and engineering services, I’m delighted to be taking over this prestigious ECA role as an industry advocate and leader.
“The industry currently faces unprecedented challenges, and I am determined to play a role in supporting ECA Member businesses and the industry through these extremely difficult times.”
Gary became an engineer for Lorne Stewart – a prominent M&E business and longstanding ECA member – more than 30 years ago. He progressed to become CEO of the engineering division after holding several senior management roles along the way.
ECA CEO Steve Bratt added: “We are delighted to announce Gary has become our new President. The entire ECA team look forward to working with him to further develop what the ECA delivers for its members, and in support of the wider engineering services sector.
“I would also like to welcome long-standing ECA advocate Steve Murray to the role of Vice President, and to thank Jim for his valuable contributions to ECA’s national and regional activity during the past year, and for his support for the ECA team.”
