Sergio Galvan-Montesdeoca retires from the ICHCA Board
In this issue of ICHCA Insights we wanted to make a special point of marking the retirement of Sergio Galvan-Montesdeoca. Sergio was a Director and Board member of ICHCA International from 2008 to 2021 which is an extraordinary and valued contribution to the successes and life of ICHCA by any measure.
Sergio fully committed to the principles of ICHCA International, advocating for sharing good practice and exchange of learning within the ICHCA community. A superb ambassador for ICHCA and for raising health and safety standards across the industry, Sergio was integrally involved in our engagement with the Canaries and Africa region. His tireless efforts to grow membership there and to provide them with great workshops and seminar opportunities will be recognisable to all who encountered him or experienced those events. Sergio brought to bear an invaluable ability to seek out gaps and missed opportunities in available guidance and information and help develop content that was fit for purpose and accessible to members at every stage of the health and safety maturity curve. His in-depth knowledge of product handling, in particular bulk materials, was frequently called upon. We wish Sergio an incredibly enjoyable retirement and say thanks for all his contributions to ICHCA International over the years.
