The National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) will be represented on the Board of the Government-endorsed TrustMark scheme to continue their work in raising industry standards and to strategically drive it forward.
Mike Wharton, head of membership and commercial services at the NFRC, has been elected as a non-executive director of TrustMark
He said: “In the wake of the Farmer Review and Each Home Counts Report, I am delighted to have been elected to the TrustMark board during such an exciting and fast-moving time. NFRC has been a scheme operator from the outset, and I look forward to contributing to what has become a cornerstone in consumer representation and mark of quality.”
In the last few years the NFRC has worked hard to urge roofing companies to join the thousands of tradesmen who have already been given the TrustMark seal of approval.
Simon Ayers, Chief Executive of TrustMark said “We are delighted that Mike has joined the TrustMark Board and brings his wealth of experience and knowledge to the team at these challenging but exciting times.
Mike’s appointment as one of our Trade Directors brings added strength to the current Board and builds on the existing core abilities and capabilities. I look forward to working with Mike to deliver TrustMark over the coming years and facing the challenges this will bring.”
For existing members of NFRC, membership of TrustMark comes free.
