Simon Acres joins the Furniture Makers Company
Simon Acres, principal director at KBB specialist Acres Consultancy, has joined the charitable organisation, the Furniture Makers' Company (FMC). Simon was admitted to the Company last month and during a young professional industry experience lunch and presentation.
Simon says, "I am delighted to have become part of this worthwhile organisation. The FMC helps individuals with financial assistance and advice when times are tough. All well as providing essential help and support FMC also drives excellence and high standards and promotes education for the future of the industry.
"It is a great way to be involved, share knowledge and experiences, and a fantastic way to support the vibrant furnishing industry to which we all belong.
"I was impressed by the young people that made their presentations after a three-week project visiting furniture companies across the UK to understand all areas of the furniture industry supply chain. In particular, questions post presentation were handled professionally and with intelligent answers."
MFC Master Dids Macdonald OBE says: "It was such a pleasure to welcome Simon. I am delighted that he has indicated his wish to immerse himself in supporting our work and give something back to this industry."
Membership of the FMC is open to individuals involved in the furniture industry, corporate company and young furniture makers.
