Appointment of New Executive Director for SASSDA

Members may recall an Inform distributed earlier this year which advised members that Bill Scurr, present Executive Director of Sassda, would be leaving the association at the end of September 2014.

At a Sassda Board Meeting held on 20 August 2014, it was agreed to offer the Executive Director position to John Tarboton, with effect from 1 September 2014. John has subsequently accepted this offer.

John, a metallurgist by training, joined Sassda in May 2013, having spent his entire working career in the stainless steel industry. Many Sassda members, particularly in the fabrication and welding sectors, will have interacted with John since he joined the association. John has also been looking after the day-to-day operational activities of Sassda since March 2014.

I would like to congratulate John on his appointment as Executive Director and wish him well on taking Sassda forward.

Kind regards
Bernard Maguire
Sassda Chairman
