Trade body which includes British Refrigeration Association and Heat Pump Assocation selects another ex-military man to succeed Cedric Sloan
The FETA Board has chosen Russell Beattie to succeed Cedric Sloan, when he retires in September 2014.
After a successful military career, Russell was the CEO of the John Smith Trust, working with various government institutions to promote good governance and leadership in former Soviet Union and Middle Eastern nations.
He views his appointment as a further opportunity to take on a constructive and responsible role in what he sees as a vital part of British industry. The title is being changed from Diector General to reflect the more common practice in trade bodies to use the term Chief Executive.
