Bacta has announced the departure of membership and operations manager Linda Malcolm, after 20 years spent working for the association.
Praising her “dedicated and loyal service,” CEO John White confirmed Malcolm is to leave the operational team to “explore new horizons.”
“I’m sure you will all want to join James [Miller] and I in thanking Linda wholeheartedly both publicly and at a personal level for her remarkable contribution to Bacta and the industry over these many years,” said White.
“She has become an integral part of the Bacta family; ever present at the many Bacta events she organised, providing unstinting support to a succession of Chief Executives and Presidents, and always happy to help members with their questions or enquiries whenever they had cause to telephone the office.”
Having moved to the UK from Zimbabwe in 1986, Malcolm joined Bacta in early 2001 after working for the Crown Prosecution Service, and as part of the team helping to build the reputation of the Construction Plant Hire Association.
“She intends to stay in touch,” added White. “We hope to be able to organise a suitable farewell event for her in the future when life returns to something more akin to normality.”
