RACHEL FRYERS APPOINTED BMF BOARD ADVISOR
08 February 2021
The BMF has appointed Rachel Fryers, Director of Merritt & Fryers in Skipton, as a Board Advisor with effect from 1 April 2021.
Before taking her position in the family firm, Rachel spent almost 20 years as a landscape architect, gaining a breadth of experience within large multidisciplinary infrastructure and construction teams, delivering a wide range of projects from new towns to schools, hospitals and prisons.
Since her return, she has overseen the expansion of the award-winning business. Rachel is motivated by a desire to see the industry embrace environmentally sustainable practices. She is also a champion of workplace training and education. As a director of one of the smaller independent merchants, she is well placed to support their development within the supply chain.
In addition to its board of directors, the BMF may appoint up to two non-voting advisors to strengthen the advice available to it on merchant, supplier or regional issues.
Richard Hill, BMF Chairman said: “We are delighted to welcome Rachel as a Board Advisor. She brings a wealth of valuable experience from the independent merchant sector that will help inform BMF activities as the construction industry steps up to help rebuild the post-Covid economy.”
