Introducing President Sydney Richard Slaughter!

A look through our archives has identified this charming photograph from circa 1957, identifying our former Managing Director, Sydney Richard Slaughter (seated second left) prior to the commencement of his second term as President of the Builders Federation.

The wall mounted plaque behind details his previous term in office back in 1941 and the eagle eyed amongst you will not the names Setter (Stone & Co. now Stone BCI), Pearce (now Crest Nicholson/ISG Plc), Cowlin (now Balfour Beatty Plc), J H Perkins (now John Perkins Ltd), J Scull (now Emcor).

There has been an obvious change, businesses have changed, but is also great to be able to look back at our roots whilst feeling excited about the future.
