|CEO of Methven UK, Steve Lee|
Steve Lee has over 25 years' experience in the bathroom industry, having joined Bristan in 1991 and now leading brassware supplier Methven UK. He was named president of the BMA in 2010, succeeding Alan Brown of Twyford Bathrooms.
In 2012, his two-year presidential tenure sees him succeed retiring president Ian Stuart, chairman of Aqualisa.
Concluding his fixed term of office, Ian Stuart commented: "My stint at the helm seems to have flown by. The association is in great shape. We have a clear strategy, our finances are in good order and our initiatives as the Voice of the Bathroom Industry are now highly regarded by the government, the industry and the public."
The BMA was recently represented at the National Home Improvement Council's parliamentary lunch, speaking on the need for water efficiency to its members and members of parliament.
Speaking on his appointment, Lee said: "We are travelling a challenging path and the last few years have been particularly painful for our members. But the BMA remains strong, focused and proactive and I am extremely proud to be taking the lead."
The AGM also saw the election of the managing director of Roman, David Osborne, to the position of first vice president. He is currently chairman of the BMA's Centre of Excellence Product Group.
