LEEA names new representative for Australia and NZ

The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) have announced the appointment of Justin Boehm as the LEEA representative in Australia and New Zealand.

LEEA is established across the globe as the leading representative body for all those involved in the lifting industry worldwide. It is the respected and authoritative representative body for its members who work in every aspect of the industry – from design, manufacture, refurbishment and repair, through to the hire, maintenance and use of lifting equipment.

The Association has played a key role in this specialised field for over 70 years, from training and standards setting through to health and safety, the provision of technical and legal advice, and the development of examination and licensing systems.

LEEA represents its members at the highest levels across a range of both public and private bodies, including various government departments, as well nationally and internationally recognised professional and technical institutions.

Dr Ross Moloney, LEEA CEO, is proud to welcome Boehm to the association and sees his appointment as a vital step towards fulfilling LEEA’s goal of boosting the profile of its membership in Australia and NZ.

Boehm joins LEEA from industry association organisation Australian Industry Group (Ai Group), where he was regional manager. Ai Group, along with its affiliates, represents 60,000 businesses and one million people.

“I am tremendously excited to be taking on this role for such a respected and important association as LEEA and look forward to meeting our members across the lifting equipment industry,” Boehm said.

“I am particularly keen to work closely with them in the promotion of excellence and to increase their influence across all end-user markets in both countries.

“In addition to actively getting out into industry to engage with end-user markets and supply chains, I want to enhance the support members receive from LEEA. I will, of course, also be helping members to ensure their audits and action plans are up to date.”
