New JIB Chaiman, What Does It Mean?

Earlier this evening, a new statement appeared on the hardly used, rather outdated, JIB website.


 28th September 2011

The Joint Industry Board for the Electrical Contracting Industry (JIB) confirmed today that Sir Michael Latham will step down as its Independent Chairman at the end of the year after 13 years of service since his appointment in January 1998.

Paul Corby will take over from Sir Michael on 1st January 2012 and he will start working immediately with Sir Michael to pick up current issues and ensure a smooth handover.
Sir Michael said “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Chairman but it is now time to pass on my responsibilities and I have the highest regard for Paul Corby, who played a key role in the JIB’s activities for many years.”
Paul Corby said “I am privileged to take over from Sir Michael and he will be a very hard act to follow. The JIB has always been very close to my heart and I look forward immensely to working with the JIB staff, Unite and the ECA to take the JIB forward.”

Sir Michael is turning 70 in November and will have been in this current role for 13 years. Paul Corby is the former National Construction Officer for Amicus which he took voluntary redundancy from in 2005.
