Douglas Herbison, pictured, the CEO of the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances – AMDEA – is retiring after 13 years at the helm, having joined the organisation in 2006.

During his time as CEO, Herbison has overseen expansion of the group’s membership as well as widening recognition of its “technical expertise in developing product standards” and leading “innovative campaigns” on key issues, AMDEA said.

The organisation added that under Herbison’s direction, it “was instrumental in the creation of the Joint Trade Associations Group – JTA – to propose schemes for improving the UK WEEE system” as well as winning the British Standards Institution – BSI – Industry Leadership award.

“We appreciate the important contribution Douglas has made to AMDEA, and the white goods industry, in his career within the organisation and wish him well in his retirement,” said AMDEA chair Teresa Arbuckle.
