Speaking about his new role, Mr.Braithwaite said: “I am really looking forward to getting started and would encourage NASC members to get in touch if they have a technical query they need help with.

“It’s great to join the NASC’s executive team, which plays such a key role in supporting the NASC membership as well as the scaffolding industry as a whole.”

Mr.Braithwaite replaces Ken Johnson, who held the role for more than seven years.

Robin James, NASC Managing Director, said: “I’d like to welcome Dennis to the NASC team. He has extremely large shoes to fill in replacing Ken but we’re sure if anyone can carry on the outstanding work Ken undertook on behalf of the confederation then it’s Dennis.”
