SAS Group client Master Electricians Australia (MEA) has appointed electrical industry leader John Horan as the organisation's new President.
Mr Horan said he was honoured to be named the President of such a dynamic association.
“Master Electricians Australia is the nation’s leading business partner, knowledge source and advocate for electrical contractors,” Mr Horan said.
“When I became an apprentice 29 years ago, I never imagined I’d be leading such a successful association.
“I look forward to working with our members and the board to continue this success.”
Mr Horan has more than 29 years' experience in the electrical industry and will bring a wealth of expertise to MEA. In 2004 John founded Horan and Bird, a North Queensland based electrical company, which now employs nearly 100 people and is one of the largest solar installers in Australia.
MEA CEO Malcolm Richards expressed his thanks to outgoing President Tony Arnold and said he was a fantastic leader who helped guide the association through some of its biggest challenges over the last few years.
“He has greatly impacted MEA, and we are on an exciting new pathway to success as a result,” Mr Richards said.
