Karen Perry of Daikin UK is the new chairperson of the Institute of Refrigeration’s Women in RACHP Network.

She follows in the footsteps of BITZER UK's Samantha Buckell, who held the position for the past three years.
Karen said: “I am honoured to take over from Samantha as chair and look forward to taking the group further to contribute to the HVACR industry by attracting a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

“Having worked in this industry for 25 years I hope to share positive experience and ideas to support women in the industry and also attract new people through our network.”
 
Samantha said: “Over the last three years the group has gone from strength to strength. I have been very lucky to be part of a conscientious hard-working team of people from the industry. One of our main strengths is undoubtably inclusivity.”

“Karen is the perfect person to move the steering group onto its next stage and I am very excited to see where we go next.”
 
The network offers a series of practical events and talks open to all aimed to improve diversity in the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pump sector. For more information and details of future events, visit the dedicated page
