Landscaping association appoints new chair

After “a year of turbulence”, BALI has a new chairman and is looking forward once more

British Association of Landscape Industries chief executive Paul Kerr resigned last August, with David Spencer taking over. He keeps that role. Essex-based Ground Control manager Neil Huck, who has acted as chairman since August, officially took over the role at BALI ’s annual general meeting in Warwickshire last month. Spencer, who preceded Huck as chairman, said: “The turbulence of the past year in both the association and landscaping has focused our minds on the way forward. BALI is being looked on by others in the industry as the leading body, and I’m sure that Neil will provide that leadership. People are beginning to recognise BALI again as the lead body in the industry.” Huck said: “My goal for my tenure as chairman is to foster this recognition of the importance of landscaping to the British economy and the environment. “I feel very strongly that the disparate state of our industry does us no favours with our political masters. We need a united voice to take to Westminster and Europe.”
