Roderick Pettigrew resigns as B&ES chief executive
Roderick Pettigrew has resigned as chief executive of the Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES).
President, Andy Sneyd, said that the departure was “entirely amicable” and he thanked Mr Pettigrew for his valuable contribution during 25 years with the Association – particularly in the past two years when, as chief executive, he had worked closely with the officer team in developing the B&ES vision and strategy.
“My fellow officers, members of Council and the staff of the Association all join me in wishing Rod the very best of good fortune in pursuing his future career,” said Mr Sneyd.
Interim arrangements are in place to ensure that the B&ES continues to operate effectively – and to serve the interests of its members – while the search for a new chief executive is undertaken.
These arrangements include the formation of a strategic and operational board, under the chairmanship of the president.
“At the top of the new board’s agenda will be key issues surrounding membership and marketing, the development of the Association’s own skills base and the future of vocational education and training across building engineering services,” said the president.
