CFPA Chairman: My name is Frank Pirri and I am currently the Sales and Product Manager at Flodraulic. I have been involved in the Fluid Power Industry since 1984. Throughout the years I have witnessed many interesting advancements in the industry and am intrigued to see how fluid Power will continue to evolve to meet the challenges of the day and tomorrow.
I am pleased to have been recently elected as the new Chair of Canadian Fluid Power Association (CFPA) by the Board of Directors. During my time as Chair I hope to both strengthen and expand the ground work already laid down by my predecessors.
The CFPA is currently in a state of welcome growth, we look forward to truly representing the Canadian Fluid Power Industry from Coast to Coast. We encourage all member companies to get involved by joining a committee making sure your voice is heard making the CFPA stronger as a whole.
CFPA Vice-Chair: My name is Caryes Allan, and I am the Vice Chairperson for the CFPA. I am also the vice president of Higginson Equipment, a cylinder manufacturer and fluid power distributor in Burlington Ontario. My work experience in the fluid power industry spans over a decade, where my main focus has been finance and human resources.
I am excited to be the new CFPA vice chair, and cherish the opportunity to help guide the association through this period of growth and expansion. I feel women in fluid power executive positions are all too uncommon, so I will take my position seriously to set an example to young women considering STEM careers, or a business occupation in a male-dominated field.
Within the CFPA, I am active in the Region Events, Education and Communications committees, and contribute directly to the Nation and Toronto Fluid Power Challenge Committees. I encourage all of you in the association to sign up for at least one committee so the voice of you and your member company can be heard.
