Steve Cawthorne has been honoured

EWRIS honoured Steve Cawthorne for his long term of service and expertise. Steve will retire next year from his TWG Chairman position.

In reflection of when Steve was involved in standards and EWRIS, he remembered of European meetings with Dr. Siegmund and Michael Molkow in the 1990’s – stalwarts of the industry for sure some of the older members of EWRIS will remember. But it was not until the late 1990’s/ early 2000’s that he got heavily into EWRIS activities first under the chairmanship of Pierre Francois Baron and then Ray Allen; although he had worked with them for some time previously in the standards’ meetings. Steve would like to mention Anne Jourdain who was most supportive and welcoming of him into the EWRIS family. Unfortunately Anne, Pierre and Ray are no longer with us, but he would like to think that he was able to continue in their mould, bringing and maintaining professionalism and knowledge into the organisation.
