LEEA Announces New Board Member
Steven Flint, CEO of The Rigging Shed in Western Australia, has succeeded Ashley Thacker as the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association’s board member for Australasia.
As the first of 100 LEEA members in Australasia, Thacker played an instrumental role in promoting the association after family business, Ranger Lifting, joined as a corporate member in 2011. Aged 26 at the time, he says: “My proudest moment was actually being accepted onto the LEEA Board at such a young age, and being taken seriously when bringing things forward.”
Ross Moloney, the association’s CEO, adds: “During his time on the board, Ashley has overseen remarkable progress by the Association in Australasia.
“He has been a consistent champion of lifting and particularly the use of new technologies and components – something that is a fast growing part of the sector’s future, and his experience and industry knowledge has been immensely valued by the LEEA.
“I would also like to welcome Steve to the board who, being a 34-year industry veteran, will bring a new perspective to the role.”
The LEEA is keen to hear from other members who may be interested in joining its Board – visit www.leeaint.com.
