Associate director at Ashby property consultancy voted national deputy chair of key industry association

An associate director at a leading property consultancy has been voted national deputy chair of a key pipeline industry association.

Rachel Bridge, of Fisher German, has become the deputy chair of the Pipeline Industries Guild (PIG), the only association worldwide to cater directly for the needs of the pipeline industry.

The role will see her sit on the executive committee of PIG, looking at the development of the industry right across the UK, before becoming national chair in 2024 – one of only a small number of women to ever take up the position.

Rachel was first introduced to PIG during a university placement in 2007 and has since been an active member, taking on the role of Midlands chair in 2020.

She is now set to focus on driving sustainability across the sector as part of the guild’s 2025 strategy.

She also has a passion for education and has ambitions to educate young people on the importance of the sector and the varied career paths it offers.

Rachel is an associate director within Fisher German’s Infrastructure Services Division, and is based at the firm’s Ashby office.

She is responsible for business development and bidding for new infrastructure work and also has more than 10 years of experience managing infrastructure assets across the oil and fibre sectors.

Rachel said:

“I am very pleased to be voted in as national deputy chair at such an exciting time for the industry.

“We are entering a green revolution which focuses on sustainability for now and the future, and PIG sees itself as being central to this.

“There are some major multimillion pound infrastructure projects set to take place across the UK, and I will be looking to drive innovation across the whole sector, exploring new technologies and encouraging the sharing of best practice.

“Education is a passion of mine and I will be ensuring that we connect with people at a young age so that we have a diverse pool of talented individuals joining the industry.

“With a number of major projects on the horizon we need to have motivated people coming into the industry to help make these happen.”
