After seven years in post, David Frise is to leave the FIS to take up a new role as Chief Executive of BESA, the Building Engineering Services Association.

President of the FIS, Andrew Smith says “we will be sorry to see David leave he has developed the FIS into a leading trade body in the industry; growing the membership through the merger of the AIS and FPDC and promoting the sector by helping to improve technical standards and the skills base”

“The FIS board will now start the search for a successor. David will remain at FIS in a part-time role until the new person is selected.”

David Frise says “I have really enjoyed every minute of my time at the FIS, I have met great people, made real friends and I hope helped to make a difference. The organisation is in good hands with a clear strategy from a knowledgeable board and dedicated staff; you will, I’m sure, go from strength to strength.”

From all of us at FIS, we wish David well in his new venture.
