posted: 4th Aug 2016
David Beckford managing director of Pronto Industrial Paints has been elected vice president of the British Coatings Federation (BCF). Whilst at 37 he is believed to be the youngest ever elected to the role, David has been a board member of the BCF for over 5 years and has been an active member of the Industrial Coatings Council since 2006. He will be supporting the new BCF President, Vincent O’Sullivan of PPG, over the next 2 years.
Commenting on his new role, David said : "With the Brexit decision coming just 24 hours after our election, it is sure to be an interesting couple of years for myself and Vinny. We are looking to bring fresh energy and commitment to the roles, carrying on the excellent work of those who went before us. Coming from SME and multinational backgrounds, we can help represent all member needs on a national level, and look forward to working with Tom and the team. The BCF has an increasingly important role to play in the UK, taking the lead on issues that help to ensure a level playing field for all manufacturers."
