We are leading and representing on more topics than ever before. We are holding the sector to account, when appropriate, more than ever before. ESSA is more focused on clarity of vision for its members’ future and is set to continue the delivery of incredible outputs in the coming months and beyond to represent suppliers’ best interests.”

Here is what Oliver had to say about his nomination:

“Like my fellow nominees, I’m truly honoured to have been voted onto the board, and I am eagerly looking forward to embarking on this journey and collaborating with everyone. Driving thought leadership from the supplier side of the EIA is incredibly exciting.
