Take a look at what some have had to say over the years.

“I would like to thank you for your work on the Sector Advisory Group and the support you have given, over many years, to UK exports during your time at the BCFA, such as your contribution to the success of the British Business Embassy at Lancaster House for the 2012 Olympic Games.”

Tim Davie, Director Global and CEO BBC Worldwide. Now Director General.

“Colin combines market insight, creativity, energy and wit with a calming, friendly personality. He managed the rare task of taking a UK product launch and turning it into an internationally recognised brand, not an everyday occurrence in the furniture world!”

“A huge thank you for your support and advice over the years.”

Director of Cheshire Business

“You have been a delight to know and work with.”

International Designer

“The Organisation has transformed under your management, and you really do leave it in a very strong position.”

CEO Distribution Business

“I have tremendous respect and admiration for the way that you have turned the organisation around over the last 8 years, making it in to the brand and the force that is now is in the furniture industry.”

Board Director, Seating Manufacturer

“You’ve been a massive ambassador and driver for the BCFA. You are also a well-known individual – and, as a personality, you will be missed.”

Director, Hypnos Beds

“Colin’s vision as a leader is exemplary. His ability to think in a lateral manner, to problem solve and to challenge and develop business strategy has been inspirational.”

Business Professional

“What a pleasure it’s been working with you, and I’m astounded by what you have achieved for both the BCFA and the wider furniture industry.”
