Ian Haldane is Chairman at Haldane Fisher, whose headquarters is in Newry, and was presented with the BMF Honorary Achievement Award 2023 at the BMF Annual Members Conference and Awards.

The award recognises his commitment to the industry and long-standing support of the BMF.

Ian says, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the building supply industry, making many friends, travelling the world, building a successful business and giving back some of my time to a sector that has been good to me.

“I was somewhat surprised, equally delighted and extremely honoured to have received this award.




“I have been in this industry for over 40 years, currently as Chairman of the Haldane Group, 32 years as Managing Director and six years as a Board Member of the Builders Merchants Federation.

“My direct involvement in the BMF has been both interesting and extremely valuable by way of providing me with a great insight into our sector, and in turn, I hope I have been able to contribute in some small way.

“The BMF is a fantastic organisation: great for training, seminars, networking, benchmarking and market information.

“I can only encourage members to get involved as much as you can – indeed, the more you put in, the more you will get out.”
