Conference season is truly hotting up and this week we are managing two global conferences, the first commencing the morning and running across five days, with 25 speaker sessions, breakout rooms, networking sessions and panel discussions. The event has attracted hundreds of professional delegates looking to explore and unpick the hottest topics and biggest questions in their field.
Dr Philip Wright has been appointed as chief executive to the Textile Services Association (TSA) with immediate effect.
Wright brings to the TSA over 20 years’ experience in membership and trade associations with a particular focus on strategy, regulation and public affairs. He takes over from Dr Roger Salmon who has been interim CEO since January 2015, and will continue to assist with the transition.
Julian Carr, chairman of the TSA Board and operations director hospitality at Berendsen, commented: “I’m delighted that Philip has joined the TSA as our new chief executive. I also want to thank Roger Salmon for his excellent stewardship as interim CEO. With Philip’s appointment we have a real opportunity to raise the profile of our services to our customers, supply partners and in the wider commercial environment. It’s also important that, from the current foundations, we can increase awareness of our role and ensure value for the investment and commitment by our Members to the TSA.”
