Hemingway brings more than 30 years of construction sector experience to the role. He was Managing Director of the suspended ceiling manufacturer Rockfon for seven years before moving into distribution as National Sales Director for the interior business of SIG, a European leader in construction material distribution, and most recently construction products distributor, Encon Nevill Long.
Hemingway’s focus will be on increasing member numbers and engagement while also developing the extensive benefits already enjoyed by BESA members. He will be responsible for the existing team of regional managers and will report directly to Group Chief Executive, David Frise.
Commenting on his new appointment, Hemingway said: “I am delighted to be joining an organisation with such a respected and impressive track record of sector leadership going back more than a century.
“I am looking forward to working with the membership team to enhance the support we offer and encourage more firms to join us.
“The bigger we are as a collective, the better we can represent the industry and the more our members benefit.”
