BCIA names new president

The Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA) has appointed Stacey Lucas, Commercial and Marketing Director at Sontay, as its new President.

Lucas has been working in the building controls and BEMS sector for over 20 years, starting her career at Sontay in 2001 as a Customer Service Advisor. As she has worked her way up through the ranks she has built long lasting relationships with many of Sontay’s customers and made a real impact on the industry. The knowledge and insight learned over the years has given Lucas a brilliant knowledge base and high level of technical understanding of the building controls sector which has already served her well in position as Vice-President, a role she took on in November 2022.

Lucas takes over as President from Graeme Rees who has held the role for the past two years, with Jen Vickers stepping into the role of Vice-President.

Reflecting on his two years as President Rees said: “These last two years have been extremely rewarding both on a professional and a personal level. I would like to thank everybody who has supported, guided and helped me move the BCIA forward in a number of areas. I have been very proud to serve as President and I am delighted to now hand over to Stacey and wish her the very best of luck in this extremely prestigious role.”

Commenting on her appointment Lucas said: “It is a real honour to be taking over the role of BCIA President from Graeme Rees who has done a fantastic job in increasing member engagement and setting us onto a clear path as an organisation carrying recognition, respect and influence in the building controls industry. Over the next two years I aim to continue the good work carried out by my predecessors and I am relishing the opportunity.”
