On Friday 27th October we welcomed eight new Liverymen to the Company, all of which are familiar faces in the industry. They include (L-R):

  • Chris Cunliffe, ex CEO of Selco;
  • Andy Simpson, National Commercial Director, Hanson Cement;
  • Chris Hemmington-Green, Divisional Director, The VELUX Company Ltd;
  • Mr Andrew Harrison, Group Commercial & Business Development Director, Travis Perkins;
  • Chris Whitlock, Managing Director, Harlow Holdings Ltd;
  • James Rance, Managing Director, Kings Langley Building Supplies Ltd;
  • Rav Singh Sumal, Operations Director, C&S Builders Merchants.

The installation of the new Liverymen took place on the same evening in which Brian Blanchard was installed as WCoBM’s new Master. The formal ceremony took place at the prestigious venue – Mansion House, home to the Lord Mayor of London and our Honorary Liveryman Alderman Dr. Andrew Parmley.

The installation of a new Master is one of the main events in the WCoBM’s social calendar, making it a very special evening for the new Liverymen. A champagne reception and white tie dinner followed.
