UK: Mark Woods, the former joint MD of Space Engineering Services, has replaced Nick Howlett as chairman of the Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA).
Currently president of the British Refrigeration Association (BRA), Mark now heads his own contractor/consultancy business RefMech Ltd.
Having started his career in 1986 as an apprentice at Carter Refrigeration, Mark has held several technical and leadership roles in his 33 years in the industry, which include being a member of the EURIS panel representing industry during the Brexit process, and also being a panel member for the new T Level qualification in Refrigeration, which is due for launch in 2021.
The BRA has also elected Mark Hughes, Chemours’ business development manager for Opteon refrigerants as vice president. Mark is also vice chairman of the BRA equipment and components section, and, like many FETA members, represents the BRA on a BSI standards committee.
Nick Howlett remains as HEVAC president, and will be closely involved in the review and update of the Building Regulations, which is underway.
