Mark Dunn, head of training of roofing at Sika, brings his 38 years of experience in the industry where he has also served as regional officer for two years at the IoR since joining in 2005.
Speaking of his new responsibility as an IoR board member, Mark said: “I have been involved in the institute for 18 years, and it has served me well. This is a great opportunity to give something back and help steer the IoR, ensuring it keeps benefitting our members.
“The IoR is continuing to grow, and with Kay Rose at the reigns as CEO, we have seen some real positive change of late. I am looking forward to being involved in some of these decision-making processes that will ultimately offer even more positive transformation for our sector.”
Mark will also be responsible for delivering the IoR’s Associate Course – a course designed for anyone considering a professional career in roofing, particularly with an eye to moving into a supervisory or management role. It provides essential skills and knowledge to enable candidates to progress in the roofing industry.
