Julie White elected chair of Drilling & Sawing AssociationPublished 16/9 at 15:35
Julie White, the managing director of D-Drill – a diamond drilling and concrete sawing company with offices across the UK – has been elected as chair of the Drilling & Sawing Association.
Julie White, who has recently stepped down as president of the international association IACDS, has been running D-Drill since she completed a management buy-out in 2008. Throughout that time, steps have been taken towards unifying the construction sector along the supply chain; however there is still a great deal of work to be done.
“I am delighted to take on the role of chair of the Drilling & Sawing Association,” says Julie White. “My father and D-Drill actually set up the association in the early 1980s when no one had even heard of our trade, so I am very proud to move into this role and to follow in his footsteps. I really want to use my time as chair to ensure that companies across our sector understand the benefit of being part of this association, and how we can work together to resolve issues that affect us all, but also learn from each other too.”
