This appointment is only the second time that a representative from a Southern Hemisphere member country has been appointed to this prestigious position in the 56-year history of the IIW. It is a significant achievement for Australia and Australian industry.
Chris has given 30 years service to IIW and the welding industry world-wide. In 1992 he chaired the working group that established the new IIW Education, Training and Qualification programmes for welding personnel on an international basis, now adopted in 32 countries. Since 1993, he was the IIW Director with the responsibility for developing and implementing the very successful IIW key strategy on Regional Activities and Liaison with Developing Countries, as well as the Chairman of the Board of Directors' Task Force on Certification.
Since 1978 he has received twelve major awards for his work, from the American Welding Society (AWS), SAIW and the WTIA. He is also a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers (Aust), Institution of Mechanical Engineers (UK), The Welding Institute (UK), the SAIW and WTIA, as well as a Professional Chartered Engineer in Australia and the UK.
From April 1995 he has led the very successful team effort building up the WTIA to its present level of national and international credibility. At the WTIA, he has been involved in a series of national projects on Technology Diffusion and Innovation supported by the Australian, State and Territory Governments and industry throughout the country. Through the IIW he has undertaken a number of similar initiatives in South Eastern Europe and Southern Africa and is introducing a global cooperative project to approach the challenge of skills shortages and the improvement of the image of welding throughout the world.
