ALLMI Elections

The UK’s only trade association devoted exclusively to the lorry loader industry recently concluded its biennial election process for positions on the ALLMI Board and Operators’ Forum Executive Committee.  

For the ALLMI Board, the process saw the vast majority of incumbent Directors being re-elected into their positions, including the nomination of Mark Rigby to serve a 13th consecutive annual term as Chairman.  The only addition was that of Neale Martin, Hiab Specialist for Londonderry Garage (SE) based in Northallerton.  He comments  “It’s a great privilege to be elected into a Director’s position and to have the opportunity to represent members’ interests on a number of different fronts. I’ve spent over 25 years working with lorry loaders and have seen the industry transformed during that time. ALLMI has been a huge part of that progress and never more so than in recent years, during which it has taken great strides to become the standard setting body that it is today. However, I know the Association is focused on continual improvement and so I look forward to bringing my experience to the Board, contributing to the important role it plays in creating positive change and influencing best practice.”  

On the fleet owner side of the membership, the election resulted in four new faces joining the Operators’ Forum Executive Committee, providing the most significant restructure since its formation in 2006.  One continuation of note, however, was Steve Frazer-Brown’s retainment of the Forum Chairman’s position for the 13th year in a row, therefore securing his place as the fleet owner representative on the ALLMI Board.       

ALLMI CEO, Tom Wakefield, comments “The election process is fundamental to the democratic manner in which ALLMI operates.  The practice provides members with the opportunity to appoint those people who they feel will best represent their interests, as well as those of the wider industry; and who will oversee the efficient and successful running of the Association.”

He continues “We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to the outgoing Board and Committee members, who have all worked tirelessly over the years to make valuable contributions to ALLMI’s many projects and activities, thereby having a genuine and direct impact on the raising of industry standards.”
