Yvonne Orgill, CEO of the Bathroom Manufacturers Association – BMA – and managing director of the Unified Water Label, has joined the advisory board of the British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation – BiKBBI.
Orgill will be leaving her role as CEO of the BMA later this year, and will be replaced by Tom Reynolds. The BiKBBI said her involvement will “further develop the relationship between the two industry organisations”.
“I cannot even begin to express how happy I am with Yvonne’s board appointment,” said BiKBBI CEO Damian Walters. “A respected, highly experienced, much loved and proven industry leader, Yvonne, from the very beginning, has been a guiding light for BiKBBI.
“There aren’t many people with experience of leading a successful trade association, so capturing Yvonne’s experience is the footballing equivalent of a cup final thirty yard, top right screamer into the back of the net!”
He added: “Yvonne was one of the very first people I spoke to 15 years ago when we first scoped the prospect of an institute for installation. Since then, our relationship has become stronger and stronger, primarily as both organisations share the same values.”
Orgill added: “I am thrilled to have been approached to join the BIKBBI Board and one I look forward to. I am a firm believer in strong partnerships that can come together with the same objective. BiKBBI and BMA have the same vision: compliant product installed correctly for the benefit of the consumer – a big ask that is not unachievable!”
