New appointments at BITA

Mar 03, 2014
BITA (the British Industrial Truck Association) has announced two new appointments.
 

Steve Stewart, Managing Director of Crown Lift Trucks Ltd, is joining BITA’s Management Board, while Victoria Hutson, Principal Standards and Legislation Engineer with JCB, is the new Chairperson of the Technical Policy Committee (TPC).

 

Steve Stewart takes on a general governance role with the Management Board, until he is allocated specific responsibilities later in the year. Commenting on his appointment, Steve Stewart said: “I am very pleased to be asked to join the Management Board. BITA plays an important role as the voice of the industry, representing the interests of its members at UK and European level.”

 

Victoria Hutson is an engineer with over 15 years’ experience and has been with JCB for three years. During her time as a design engineer she developed an interest in safety and regulation, and sees the TPC as playing a vital role for BITA members.

 

“I am very excited to be appointed as Chair of the TPC. I see our role as ‘future proofers’ for the industry – ensuring that BITA members have a voice in discussion around future standards and regulation, but also that they are prepared for the changes that such regulation may bring.”

 

The TPC ensures that the voice of BITA members is heard when new standards and regulations are being formulated. This also enables BITA to operate an ‘early warning system’ to help members prepare for future legislation, advising them how to react.
