Refrigeration consultant Steve Gill wins election to become IOR President Elect

Consultant wins first ever online Institute of Refrigeration election, which will see him taking over as president next year

Consultant Steve Gill has won the election to become IOR President Elect, beating fellow consultant Bob Arthur in the Institute’s first-ever online ballot.

Current president Graeme Maidment, who will now work closely with Mr Gill for the next year, said: “On behalf of all of the members I would like to thank both candidates for their generosity in offering their time and expertise in serving the Institute, and their willingness to stand in this election. I look forward to welcoming Steve back onto IOR Council and working with him, as President Elect,  in a variety of IOR activities over the next 12 months.

Mr Gill has been a member of various IOR committees and has been particularly feted in the last year for his social media campaign to promote the importance of refrigeration to the wider world. He won a Cooling Industry Award for his social media efforts in 2014.

  • An inspired nomination from Council and an excellent selection by the membership. Steve will be a breath of fresh air. Just what is needed.
    This is not a criticism of the IOR or the current President at all, far from it. As Steve said elsewhere, they are doing excellent work. I believe that Steve is the right man to build on the success and momentum of the current .Presidency
