Recruitment guru to speak at BMF Conference

Steve Ingham, CEO of PageGroup, the  specialist recruitment  group, will speak at  the BMF All Industry Conference in Budapest next June.

He will address the challenges of recruiting young talent into the building materials Industry and draw on lessons that can be learnt from other sectors.

Now in his eleventh year as CEO, Page has overseen the company’s rapid growth to become a FTSE 200 business with a headcount of c.6000 employees spanning 35 countries.  He also rebranded the business in 2012 bringing the three operational brands of Michael Page, Page Personnel and Page Executive together as PageGroup.

John Newcomb, BMF MD said: “Youth recruitment and succession planning is a critical business challenge for the merchant sector.  I think we all recognise that the general public does not view our industry as sexy or exciting, which can be a limiting factor in attracting young people. I’m looking forward to hearing Steve’s thoughts on overcoming perception barriers and encouraging the next generation to take our industry forward.”


The BMF All Industry Conference takes place in Budapest from 15 to 18 June 2017 at the five star Intercontinental Hotel.  Broadcaster and TV personality, Gethin Jones, will host the event, which has already sold out.  Further details are available on the Conference website, www.bmfconference2017.co.uk
