Former BAMA boss wins top honour

25-Feb-2013

Sue Harrison, the former director of BAMA (British Aerosol Manufacturers' Association), has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's New Year Honours for her services to safety in the manufacture and use of aerosols.

Sue Harrison, formerly Sue Rogers and long-serving director of BAMA (British Aerosol Manufacturers' Association) has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's New Year Honours for her services to safety in the manufacture and use of aerosols.

Harrison was director of BAMA for 18 years and stepped down last March.

Sue Harrison commented: "I feel honoured to receive this recognition for the work which I was proud to lead, as the Director of the British Aerosol Manufacturers' Association (BAMA) for 18 years. In its fifty years, the Association has always furthered safety and standards. This is an important UK manufacturing industry and I am delighted to have played a part in helping its continuing success. After retiring, re-marrying and acting as a games-maker in the London Paralympics in 2012, to receive this accolade of an MBE was a wonderful bonus in what was for me an extraordinary year".

Last year Harrison was also awarded the Rotheim Medal, named after the inventor of the aerosol, Erik Rotheim. The medal has been awarded only to a small number of industry professionals for outstanding service to the aerosol sector.

Sue Harrison's successor is Dr John Morris, who became Chief Executive in spring 2012.
