OCS's Paul Thrupp has been appointed Chairman of the British Cleaning Council (BCC).
The Director for Retail Destinations was officially elected at the council's AGM earlier this month (July 2019).
Paul was previously Deputy Chair of the council, which represents over 20 national trade associations linked to the UK's cleaning, hygiene and waste management sectors. He will continue to represent the Federation of Window Cleaners on the council.
Paul said: "As Deputy Chair I gained a clear understanding of the issues, challenges and priorities that are important to both our members and the wider cleaning industry.
"My aim is to build upon the great work of the BCC, while further exploring how the council can widen its remit and make an even bigger impact on policy makers, industry partners and other influencers on behalf of the whole sector."
