Jack-McDavidUK: Jack McDavid, marketing and communications director at the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA), has retired after nearly 30 years in the HVAC industry.

An experienced journalist with a string of editorships behind him, Jack McDavid entered the HVAC industry in 1987 as editor of H&V News, at that time the leading UK weekly magazine.

After more than seven years in the role, his career took a change of pace when he quit to join the UK contractors’ association the HVCA, as BESA was then known, as head of communications and public affairs.

His retirement on Friday after 22 years with the Association was marked with a gathering of colleagues, ex-colleagues and members of the press in the Hand and Flower public house, opposite London’s Olympia, the original venue for the UK’s first and most successful HVAC exhibitions.
