Electrical Review was last week invited to meet Tessa Ogle, the new managing director of the The Electrical Industries Charity.
An experienced general management professional with an extensive track record in leading business growth, Ogle joins the charity from Parsons Brinckerhoff (a Balfour Beatty company) where she held the position of national general manager for oil and gas.
Ogle said:“Since the Electrical Trades Benevolent Institution was founded in 1905 the charity has continued to evolve and now provides financial relief and practical support to more people in the electrical related industries than ever before.
“Two thirds of our current beneficiaries are of working age but the majority are ‘economically inactive’ due to redundancy, illness, injury or caring responsibilities. Our aim as a charity is to reach more working people and provide the support which is essential to them.
“This is therefore a very exciting time to be joining the Electrical Industries Charity and I look forward to working with the industry to ensure that we continue to provide help and support to our people when they need it most.”
Under Ogle’s leadership the charity will focus on four key programmes, the Apprenticeship Support Programme; Employee and Family Support Programme; Pensioner Support Programme and a Practical Participation Programme.
It is so important we continue to support those in our industry who need help. Please do visit www.electricalcharity.org for details on future fundraising events.
