The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) has made new appointments to its Council and Executive Board as it focuses on driving forward its Build it Better with Wood strategy.
Andrew Madge, managing director of Gowercroft Joinery, joins the Executive Board, where he will represent the membership and support the growth of the BWF’s initiatives including the Code of Conduct and its training schemes, as well as reviewing and agreeing its annual plan and supporting discussions surrounding influencing key Government policies.
Recently re-appointed president of the BWF, Sean Parnaby, said: “Andrew has shown great drive and commitment to the BWF values, furthering the use of British joinery and inspiring the next generation to enter the industry. We look forward to his active contribution in the future and his efforts in championing our build it better with wood campaign.”
Wolfgang Gorner of Allan Brothers and Simon Badham of Arden Windows have both joined the BWF Council. They will be part of the strategic conversations that will drive forward the BWF strategy, to make wood the construction material of choice by celebrating its benefits and promoting the vast range of woodworking and joinery expertise available in the UK.
“We’re also excited to welcome both Wolfgang and Simon to the BWF Council,” said Parnaby. “As dedicated members of the BWF, they have been instrumental in promoting the benefits of wooden doors and windows and we look forward to them continuing to drive forward our strategy promoting the use of timber to the wider construction industry.”
