Neil Ogilvie

I have been leading one of the largest UK trade associations, Est 1894, since 2009. I am the PDA representative at BUILD UK and a UK board representative of UNIEP (International Association of Painting Contractors). I have close working relationships with various departments within the Government and Cabinet Office, which helps me raise the profile of our sector in the UK and Europe. I have also been working with other organisations on a joint approach to sustainability/environmental issues surrounding the NetZero 50 challenge. I value the inter-professional networking I part-take in with other Trade Associations/Federations. I have many collaborative partnerships with over 50 Associate Partners, this includes maintaining relationships with many high-profile manufacturers in our sector.

On a day to day basis, I manage a team of five at PDA HQ, which includes, resources and financial management, strategic planning and communication and marketing. I also have a hand in enhancing Member benefits and services and event management, this includes, working alongside Colleges and providing training to promote and encourage Apprentice growth.
