Congratulations to Sarah Spivey, MD for Modulift UK Ltd who will be this years lady representative taking to the board at LEEA. The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association has recently declared their current ensemble of ambassadors to its vast array of global members, with Sarah second top of the poll, becoming one of five elected to the exclusive role through recent member voting. Sarah will join Paul Fulcher, Tim Burgess, Kevin Holmes and Anthony Thomas on the seats of the board having sealed approval after her first application.
Sarah's aim within this prestigious professional body is to share her industry knowledge, instilling her own valued working ethics amongst members as well as breed new ideas and discussions to lifting and safety challenges. Sarah would also hope to open conversations in a bid to see how best to move the heavy lifting industry as a whole forward, as it transcends into new territories, sectors and technologies.
Involved within high risk market sectors such as Oil & Gas, Construction, Wind Power, Aerospace, to name a few, Sarah expresses "I see first-hand the fundamental safety challenges happening on a daily basis. In turn I recognise the need to uphold and advance safety standards for a risk-free environment, responding to authority associations such as LEEA. Modulift has been involved with some particularly prestigious projects of late which have been monumental achievements for such a young company, drive, ambition, innovation and attention to detail I believe all play a vital part in their success. These values I would plan to bring to the table at LEEA as I do with my own workforce, so to support LEEA members and projects the very best way possible that I can."
Sarah, pleased with her new accolade said, "I am so excited to have been selected, and thank all those who voted for me. I think it's very important to have a ladies perspective on the board, providing an alternative viewpoint. However, equally I believe that I can offer fair and focussed judgement for all. I look forward to getting to know the LEEA members in a more personal capacity, working closely together on some of the most significant issues facing our industry in a bright and positive manner."
