Roop Lutchman, leader of GHD’s Business Consulting team in North America, has recently received the Life Membership award from the Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC). This membership recognises Roop’s contribution to PEMAC, which provides leadership, education and certification in world class maintenance and asset management practices in Canada.

Roop has been an active member of PEMAC, a recognised not-for-profit organisation, since its inception in 1989 and has served as a board member for 12 years. In particular, he has helped develop the Maintenance Management Professional (MMP) certification program, which is now a desired qualification for maintenance management professionals across Canada. The MMP program is offered through 15 colleges and two universities, and helps maintenance managers and supervisors undertake the cost effective management of an organisation's physical assets.

Roop describes his commitment to PEMAC as a ‘win-win’ situation for the organisation’s members, GHD and himself. “PEMAC has enabled me to give something back to the maintenance and asset management profession and the broader community,” he says. “It has given me a platform to share my knowledge with other practitioners, and broadened my insights into the profession and my role at GHD. It has also enabled me to contribute to shaping Canada’s maintenance and asset management practices.

“I look forward to continuing my involvement with PEMAC, particularly as the organisation extends its services to offer the Asset Management Professional (AMP) certification program through colleges and universities in Canada.”
