Siobhan Hitchen, managing director of Rope Assemblies Ltd, in the UK, has been appointed as one of four new directors of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA).

Hitchen was elected onto the board alongside three other new directors, Douglas Price of Gunnebo, Richard Oldknow of The Crosby Group and James Bolger of Certs Assured. Hitchen has worked in the lifting industry since 1997, when she joined Rope Assemblies, a rope manufacturer based in the UK.

Hitchen said, ā€œIā€™m delighted to be able to support the invaluable work of LEEA. In particular, I am keen that the association reflects the needs of members that are serving rapidly developing markets such as theatres, lighting and rigging, and the leisure industry, which typically have very distinct lifting requirements to the manufacturing, construction and offshore sectors.ā€
