B&ES elects new president for 2015/16

Jim Marner has been elected president of the Building & Engineering Services Association (B&ES) for 2015/16.

Mr Marner has 32 years’ experience in the building and engineering services sector with his current employer Shepherd Engineering Services (SES).

Having joined the firm as a craft apprentice in 1982, he has since made many valued and successful strategic contributions to the business.

As a renowned and popular business leader – whose responsibilities include the North, including Scotland, and business activities in the South – he brings to the Association a national presence.

In recognising his knowledge of members’ businesses, their clients and the wider construction industry, the Association is looking forward to his assured leadership.

His career path has taken in many senior positions within major national contractor SES – including North West regional director, Yorkshire regional director, divisional director North, national pre-construction director and business development director.

Within B&ES, he was a member of the Council of the Association from 2003 to 2006 and chairman of the North West Region from 2006 to 2008.

In 2012, he was elected to the chairmanship of Yorkshire Region, and returned to Council in the same year.

Jim Marner succeeded to the presidency of B&ES at its annual general meeting on Thursday 9 July 2015.

At the same meeting, Malcolm Thomson of Enigma Environmental Services became president elect, and Tim Hopkinson of Hargreaves Ductwork was elected vice president.

Andy Sneyd will serve during 2015/16 as immediate past president.
