Members of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) have elected Andrew Dyck, vice president of Barclay Sales, Port Coquitlam, B.C., as the group’s 72nd chairman. He is the first manufacturer’s agent to hold that position.
The election took place at the CIPH 87th Annual General Meeting June 18 in Charlottetown, P.E.I.
Dyck began his career in 1987 in inside sales with Honeywell Ltd. He then joined ECR International in 2001 as a territory manager for B.C. He served twice as CIPH B.C. Region chairman.
Dyck’s goals for the coming year include to continue round table discussions between manufacturers, wholesalers and agents to find better ways to work together, to find meaningful ways to connect with agents across the country to ensure they engage in their respective CIPH regions, to integrate previous and current long-range plans and, perhaps above all, to share the significance of the industry with Canadians.
“We know that the work we do is essential to the quality of life all Canadians expect… It’s time to start telling Canadians that the role CIPH and its members play is paramount to our country. A marketing initiative would be a great place to start,” he added.
