BESA chief executive David Frise paid tribute to Steve Hudson, divisional manager at Derry Building Services, who is stepping down as a trustee marking the end of more than 30 years’ service to the Association.
Hudson is retiring from Derry after 27 years with the company and almost half a century in the building engineering sector. As well as being a BESA trustee, he is a former chair of the East Midlands region and a stalwart of the Membership Committee.
Frise said Steve was a “fantastic example” of what it means to be part of a trade body. He was happy to share his time and expertise for the wider benefit of the industry and had supported the Association in many different ways over the years.
“BESA would not be where it is today without people like Steve who are prepared to share their knowledge freely and generously. We are extremely grateful for his exceptional service and wish him a long and enjoyable retirement. He has most definitely earned it.”
