SAIF Associate elected President of suppliers’ association09/01/2020 // No Comments
Bob Tomes, senior account manager at SAIF Associate Colourful Coffins, was recently elected President of the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers’ Association (FFMA). The election took place at the group’s AGM in November and sees Bob replace Adam Masters, who has held the FFMA Presidency for the past two years.
The Association, which exists to represent businesses that supply products to the funeral profession, is currently undergoing a period of change thanks to a new constitution, a reformed meetings structure, and significant membership growth. Bob’s Presidential year is now under way and during his time in office he aims to continue the reforming work of his predecessor.
He said: “Adam has done a tremendous job of growing the FFMA membership over the past two years. With the support of our Chief Executive, Alun Tucker, he has started to transform the Association by developing its constitution and helping it to cement its position as a respected organisation within the funeral profession. “I aim to continue with that work, growing the membership and ensuring the FFMA goes from strength to strength in its role of representing funeral profession suppliers by showcasing best practice. We also want to help members to meet the challenges of a changing profession in areas such as regulation, the environment, and funeral trends.”
