Pickfords’ Mark Herrington appointed Vice President of the BAR

Mark Herrington, Network Sales Manager, has been appointed Vice President of the BAR (British Association of Removers), for a 2-year term.

An active member of the BAR for the last 5 years, Mark chaired the BAR Commercial Moving Group (CMG) Council from July 2011 until May 2013, sitting on the BAR Board of Directors during this time. Mark’s appointment to Vice President follows his second stint on the Board.

The BAR is the removal industry’s leading trade association, involved in raising public awareness of the industry and the quality of all its members. Mark’s new position means he will be visiting all BAR Regional Area Meetings at least once during his 2-year term, to understand what is affecting them regionally, listen to their ideas for moving the industry forward and then taking these views back to the Board to help create future policy.

On the conclusion of his 2-year term, Mark’s position automatically becomes BAR President for a further 2-year term!

Mark said,

“I’m really proud to be representing Pickfords at the BAR; I am looking
forward to helping to shape the future with my fellow Board members, our joint objective is to drive improved quality throughout the industry.”
