North East & Yorkshire Section

IGEM has a network of Sections that enhances membership by offering a local perspective and enabling involvement with issues in and around the gas industry. The Sections are run by volunteers who organise a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events and networking opportunities.

Each Section has its own Chairperson and Secretary to deal with any queries you may have within your area.

Glen Judge

Chairman North East & Yorkshire Section

Glen JudgeWith over 35 years' experience in the gas industry Glen started his career as an apprentice straight from school in 1979 with North Eastern Gas. He completed his British Gas apprenticeship in 1982 and became a Gas Governor Craftsman. In 1989, Glen changed his career path and moved into the distribution side of the gas business, undertaking both office and operational activities in the Yorkshire area. This covered a range of duties including planning, scheduling and surveying. Glen continued his career over the next 26 years, taking a number of different roles in various locations throughout the north east of England. He said: "During my year as Chair, I would like to reach out to the wider gas business - not just operational engineers, and I would like to engage with our younger people within the gas business and colleagues that may have more of an administrative role than an operational one." Glen has a full year of events planned which include CPD workshops, innovation events, technical site visits and an annual charity ball. In his spare time Glen is a keen motorcyclist and enjoys running.
