The BAFE Fire Safety Register has announced the appointment of its new Managing Director, Dr Justin Maltby-Smith.
Justin joins the BAFE Fire Safety Register from his most recent roles as Technical Scheme Development Manager at NAPIT and before this a long tenure at Certsure/NICEIC leaving as Head of Schemes and Operations.
Justin said: “This is a great time to be joining such a highly respected organisation. Stephen Adams has developed BAFE to become the quality standard within the fire safety industry which I plan to continue and expand its reach. I, alongside the quality BAFE team, will work on further development of quantifying competency. I am excited for the next chapter of BAFE’s growth, knowing we already have robust and longstanding foundations to build upon.”
BAFE Chair, Douglas Barnett, stated: “Justin will be a great addition to the BAFE team. The Board and I trust he will lead the organisation in the right directions required. His knowledge and experience within both UKAS accredited third-party certification and electrotechnical sectors brings a level of expertise that will be extremely valuable to the development and management of both new and existing competency schemes for the fire safety sector.”
Douglas added: “We must also give our huge thanks to Lewis Ramsay (BAFE Board Member) who has been a crucial player in managing the business during this interim period. Lewis has been central to the delivery of services and schemes to our customers during the challenges of the pandemic.”
