Ridgeons’ Jordan appointed to FMB’s East of England board

Ridgeons’ Dave Jordan has been appointed to the area board of the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) East of England region.

Jordan is the group sustainability manager at the timber and builders merchant, headquartered in Cambridge, and he has been appointed as a new area board member for the East of England because of his “expert knowledge within the construction industry”.

He joins a board of 14 members across the region, responsible for giving FMB members a regional voice and as a result, influencing the FMB’s policies and activities.

“It’s a real privilege to be an Area Board Member for the FMB and I’m looking forward to developing the relationship between Ridgeons and the FMB, as well as helping to drive recruitment in the Eastern counties by promoting the benefits of becoming a member,” said Jordan.

“Ridgeons has offered the FMB use of its Greenlight Centre of Excellence and Training Academy to host events and seminars. The 26 Ridgeons branches will also allow FMB members greater access to materials and supplies.”

John Watson, service director FMB Central, said: “We deeply valued Dave’s previous involvement at the FMB, as he worked to help secure new members and maintained our ethos of providing FMB members with up-to-date and relevant information.

“We are very much looking forward to having Dave on the board and starting this new adventure with Ridgeons. Having a board member from Ridgeons will greatly increase the visibility of the FMB within the Eastern counties, and in turn, help boost recruitment.”
