Changing Roles and Responsibilities within British
Cleaning Council Membership Announced
New CSSA and CIEH representatives welcomed to BCC, while Keep Britain Tidy CE joins Finance
& Policy Committee
BPCA Chief Exec steps down from Council due to change of career
T
he British Cleaning Council
(BCC), which represents over
20
national
trade
and
membership associations linked to
the UK’s cleaning, hygiene and waste
management sectors, has officially
welcomed several new Council
member representatives to new roles
across both its main board and its
Finance and Policy committee.
At a recent BCC meeting, hosted by
BCC member Keep Britain Tidy at their
head office in Wigan, the BCC’s Chair
Stan Atkins formally introduced Anne
Godfrey, CEO of the Chartered Institute
of Environmental Health (CIEH), and Jim
Melvin, from the Cleaning and Support
Services Association (CSSA) as new
Council representatives for their
respective organisations.
Anne replaces former CIEH CEO
Graham Jukes, while Jim has stepped
into the role previously occupied by
former BCC Chair Doug Cooke. The
meeting in Wigan also saw Keep Britain
Tidy’s Chief Executive, Allison OgdenNewton, join the BCC’s Finance & Policy
committee for the first time.
Prior to joining the CIEH last year, Anne
had leadership roles in a diverse range
of membership organisations including
CIM, where she was Chief Executive,
the Law Society - where she was
Director of Commercial and Membership
Services- and the CBI, where she was
Commercial & Marketing Director.
New CSSA Chair Jim has had many
senior management roles within the
cleaning services sector including
Operations Director at Pall Mall,
Divisional Managing Director at
Broadreach Services, and MD at Strand
Cleaning in London. In 2013 he joined
The Exclusive Services Group as
Managing Director.
Allison joined Keep Britain Tidy as Chief
Executive in 2015. Previously she was
CE of the charity World Child Cancer.
The BCC meeting in Wigan also saw
Simon Forrester, Chief Executive of the
British Pest Control Association (BPCA)
announce that after over seven years in
post he was leaving his
role at the BPCA in
January, and would
therefore
also
be
standing down from BCC
duties.
Simon’s successor at the
BPCA is due to be
announced in the New
Year.
Commenting on the new
roles and responsibilities
of the three Council
member representatives,
BCC Chair Stan Atkins
said: “It is great to
welcome such high calibre individuals to
new roles within the BCC. Their
respective experience will help to give
the Council fresh insights into challenges
and opportunities affecting the cleaning,
waste management and environmental
sectors, plus collectively they bring skills
gained across a diverse range of
organisations and industries which will
be invaluable as we move forward.”
Stan further added: “It was also sad to
see Simon announce his departure from
Council as he, and the BPCA, have been
very supportive of the BCC’s work since
they joined us two years ago. I am
therefore looking forward to meeting
Simon’s successor when they are
appointed.”
