New BCAS executive director appointed

21 August, 2015

The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) has appointed Vanda Jones as its new executive director. She will become the society’s fourth executive director in the Society’s 85-year history and will take over from Chris Dee, who is retiring at the end of 2015 after 15 years in the role.

Jones will work alongside Dee from 1 September 2015, enabling her to experience the Society’s involvement with European bodies and the requirements of BCAS members at first hand.

Jones has significant experience in general management, strategy development and in implementing sales and marketing initiatives. This has been gained across a range of industrial sectors including materials handling, logistics and power generation and as country leader UK & Ireland for compressor manufacturer, Ingersoll Rand.

Andy Jones, president of BCAS said: “Vanda will play an instrumental role in BCAS and we are very pleased to welcome her as our new executive director. In this role, Vanda will help to raise the profile of BCAS and promote its range of services to manufacturers, distributors and end-users alike.”

He continued: “Her management experience will be of significant benefit as the society evolves to meet the needs of both members and compressed air end-users and their requirements for relevant, timely information.”

Vanda Jones added: “Customers today are demanding more efficient and innovative compressed air solutions to help meet their environmental obligations and to reduce cost of ownership. In this cost-conscious environment, BCAS fulfils an increasingly important role; not only in supporting its members’ interests but also in advising manufacturers, distributors and service agents on best practice and changes to legislation.

“I’m looking forward to working with our members to ensure that BCAS continues to deliver the right expertise and support in meeting these key challenges.”
