Former BAMA chief awarded an MBE

Sue Harrison, formerly Sue Rogers, who was director of the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) has been awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours for her services to safety in the manufacture and use of aerosols.

Mrs Harrison MBE (pictured) was director of BAMA for 18 years and stepped down in March 2012.

She said: “I feel honoured to receive this recognition for the work which I was proud to lead, as the director of the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) for 18 years. In its 50 years, the association has always furthered safety and standards. This is an important UK manufacturing industry and I am delighted to have played a part in helping its continuing success. After retiring, re-marrying and acting as a games-maker in the London Paralympics in 2012, to receive this accolade of an MBE was a wonderful bonus in what was for me an extraordinary year.”

Last year Harrison was awarded the coveted industry award, the Rotheim Medal, named after the inventor of the aerosol, Erik Rotheim. This medal has been awarded to only a small number of industry professionals for outstanding service to the aerosol sector.

Dr John Morris replaced Harrison as chief executive in spring 2012.

    To Sue Harrison:

    You said in the 2010-2011 report of your former organization that FEA awarded the first Rotheim Medal in 1971. Not so; it was awarded August 28, 1970 to Lyle Goodhue (my Dad) and William Sullivan. Now that you have won the award yoursef, can you give me a list of those who have won it since then? I could use this information for a Wikipedia endnote. Thanks.
