Yvonne Orgill, business development director at Bathroom Manufacturers Association, (BMA) and MD of the Unified Water Label initiative has joined the board at the National Home Improvement Council (NHIC).
 
The NHIC is an industry organisation which seeks to raise the quality and standards of home improvements, particularly with regards to energy efficiency and the reduction of carbon emissions in line with government targets.
 
Orgill, who stepped down as CEO of the BMA last year, takes on the role of chair of the NHIC board of trustees and is the first women to hold this position. An industry veteran with more than 30 years' experience in the bathroom sector, in 2018, she received the award for Outstanding Contribution to the KBB Industry at the essential kitchen & bathroom business awards.
 
In a statement, she said: 'I am delighted to have this opportunity to work with the NHIC board.  My passions are aligned with the NHIC strategy to drive forward the promotion of energy efficient home improvements, reducing the number of households living in fuel poverty and reduce climate impact from housing.'
 
Current BMA CEO Tom Reynolds welcomed the news, saying: 'The NHIC is a strategic partner of the BMA as we share an ambition to get the conditions right for home improvement. Yvonne’s appointment to the board will enable us to build an even stronger partnership;.
