George Clarke, consumer champion
Celebrity architect and TV presenter George Clarke has been revealed as the new consumer champion for DGCOS and its partner organisations HIES, and HICS.
George, known for Channel 4 programmes including The Home Show, The Restoration Man and George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, said: “I’ve seen it all through my own practices and the TV work that I’ve been involved with, people being ripped off or left with shoddy workmanship and unable to get a resolution. That’s why I’m pleased to be working with the HIES, HICS & DGCOS, because they share my ideals about raising standards and treating people fairly.”
The Schemes’ founder, Tony Pickup added: “George shares our passion for consumer protection and it’s perfect for us to have such a recognisable campaigner on board. When we first met to discuss the ambassador role, George was attracted to our principles and how we ensure consumers are not left disadvantage.
“By having George as the face of our brand, it gives homeowners and our members additional confidence that they will be looked after properly. We also have some very exciting plans in the pipeline, and we believe George is the perfect person to help us get our message out there.”
