Successor for B&ES Scotland and NI executive role announced

With a Higher National Certificate in both mechanical engineering and business communications, Tom MacManus will take up his new role as the B&ES nation executive for Scotland and Northern Ireland following four years as Scottish general manager of B&ES’ subsidiary Building Engineering Services Training (BEST).

His experience also includes 14 years at Telford College of Arts and Technology in Edinburgh, where he progressed to the position of assistant principal.

The Association’s operations in Scotland and Northern Ireland have also changed with the promotion of Zanna Tweedie to the new position of assistant national executive.

“Mr MacManus’ sound background in engineering, management and training in a building services environment, along with the knowledge of the Association and its members that Ms Tweedie has acquired during almost 20 years with B&ES, add up to a very strong and experienced team that will further consolidate our already solid presence in Scotland and Northern Ireland,” head of regional management Tim Acland said.

Mr McManus added: “My years with BEST have made me well aware of the challenges facing the industry today, and I welcome the opportunity to work with the membership and my colleagues across B&ES and the sector in order to address them.”

Ms Tweedie said: “Working alongside Bob Dyer has involved me in many aspects of the Association’s activities in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and I look forward to continuing to collaborate with colleagues, members and other organisations for the benefit of the sector as a whole.”
