Steve Ingle has been elected National President of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE) after more than 45 years as a member of the WaterSafe partner scheme.
The announcement was made at the CIPHE AGM on June 22 in Cardiff with around 50 water industry guests in attendance. Technical Services account manager at E.ON, Kevin McCallister, was voted in as the Vice President.
Mr Ingle has served on most of the Institute’s committees in various positions, at local, regional and national levels, as well as representing the Institute on external committees throughout his years as a member.
Steve said: “I will try to promote the importance of good design, installation and maintenance within the plumbing, heating, and associated services supported, of course by quality training.
“In a link with training, another exciting project I hope to undertake in my year of office is developing greater interface with the CIPHE’s Industrial Associates. We need to discuss how we can support their technical activities to benefit members across all parts of the Institute.”
