New leader at NASC

Grant Prior 1 year ago

The National Access and Scaffolding Confederation (NASC) has appointed Clive Dickin as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Dickin has worked for more than 25 years as a senior leadership figure within the membership trade association sector – most recently as Commercial Director for the National Federation of Builders.

His plans for the NASC include highlighting the support available to the membership – of all levels within the scaffolding sector – promoting the independently vetted, high quality industry approved standards set by the trade body and boosting membership levels.

Dickin said: “I am very excited to get the opportunity to take charge of NASC – a superbly well-established, highly respected organisation that’s transparent, open, friendly and is “here to help” people build a successful scaffolding business, based on high quality, industry respected assurance standards.

“I am keen to start building the story of how people can – and should – join NASC, and prove it’s a progressive, open and supportive membership, that can truly aid scaffolding and access contractors.

“NASC is a modern, forward thinking trade body that is here to help all businesses within the scaffolding and access sector with its recognised independently vetted standards that reduce risk and gain more business for members.

“We are here to help contracting businesses and will be offering the most prompt assistance, guidance and backing – to ensure scaffolding and access member’s grow and improve their businesses. It’s exciting times ahead…”

NASC President, David Brown, of IBN Scaffold Access Ltd said: “We are excited to warmly welcome Clive to the NASC. Clive’s experience and personality shone through during the recruitment process.

“With Clive’s excellent leadership abilities, the NASC is going to be in safe hands as we move forward. These are exciting times for NASC and I’m looking forward to NASC membership meeting Clive and seeing for themselves the positive change this is for NASC.”

Out-going acting NASC Managing Director, Dave Mosley added: “Clive really impressed the board during the interview process with his understanding of NASC’s current position – identifying areas where there is room for improvement and how he plans to move the organisation forward. We are all looking forward to him coming on board and kick starting a new era in NASC’s illustrious history.”

Dickin’s appointment means acting NASC Managing Director, Dave Mosley will return to his role as Managing Director of the Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) and NASC Director of Training.
