UK: Refrigeration consultant Bob Arthur is set to retire at the end of the year.
Bob Arthur is probably best known for his 27 years as refrigeration manager at Marks & Spencer and his pioneering work in the retailer’s move away from a reliance on HFC refrigerants.
Since retiring from M&S in 2012, he has been acting as an independent consultant with his own company Bolyn. Much of that time has been spent working with refrigeration controls manufacturer RDM, where he was appointed to manage and expand RDM’s distribution network in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Bob Arthur has served as president of the British Refrigeration Association and is a fellow of the Institute of Refrigeration. He also steps down this year from a three-year stint on the Institute’s board of trustees.
Confirming his retirement from RDM was probably his last commitment, Bob Arthur told the Cooling Post: “There are a few projects I have been involved in that may continue into the new year but these are of minimal commitment so essentially that’s it for me.”
Enrico Mirandola, RDM’s head of sales, commented: “I would like to express my gratitude to Bob Arthur, who has been instrumental in the development of our European distributor network and feel privileged to have worked together.”
