Gill was voted for by members at the recent BALI North East and Yorkshire AGM. He succeeds Joe Zazzetta from Sustain Landscapes.

His first project will be to oversee the BALI show garden at this year's Harrogate Spring Flower Show. He will be collaborating with BALI North East and Yorkshire members to exhibit their show garden 'Tea for Two' which aims to celebrate two very different traditions and ceremonies surrounding tea.

In his role as chairman Gill will be responsible for organising and running the committee meetings, representing the region at BALI events and organising team building days. He will liaise with BALI chief executive Wayne Grills and give feedback from the region. One of his primary roles will be to provide support and advice to the region's members, especially newer members.

Gill said: "BALI North East and Yorkshire is one of the strongest regions and I am delighted to have been voted as chairman. I've been with Green-tech for 13 years and a member of the committee for many years so I've been actively involved in many of the events and activities.

"It's an honour to take the chairman's role; I have many thoughts and opinions on how to carry on with the good work for this region and I will continue to help raise standards across the industry."
