LONDON: Lucia Di Stazio, director of MRA Marketing, was recently installed as a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Builders Merchants (WCoBM).
The ceremony took place on 27 October at Fishmonger's Hall on the River Thames.
Ms Di Stazio became a Freeman of the Company in June and was awarded the Freedom of the City at the beginning of October. Becoming a Liveryman was the final step in the process.
The WCoBM was founded 50 years ago and plays a key part in supporting training and education for builders' merchants and fund raising for a number of charities. The Company is a premier networking platform for members where senior industry people meet at social events organised throughout the year.
MRA Marketing has played an active role in the last 12 months helping to promote the Company's key aims and its influence within the builders' merchants industry. Ms Di Stazio is leading the public relations and marketing for the Company to help achieve wider recognition and awareness and a better understanding of what it does.
"I feel privileged to have been invited to become a Liveryman of the Company and be part of such an active organisation," she said. "Supporting the merchant industry and raising its profile in the City has never been more important when the industry is trying to get the message accepted that construction is an important part of Britain's recovery."
