He has continued the tradition of communicating how it is possible to take a wider sectoral view for the good of all companies.
‘The MPA would like to thank Dyfrig for all his efforts and wish Bill Brett every success for his two-year tenure.’
Mr Brett, who has a wide range of commercial interests and industry involvement, said: ‘I am proud to take over the role of chairman from Dyfrig, and am keen to contribute as fully as I can to the association and its activities over the next two years. I am passionate about strengthening the unity of this great sector which is so important to the UK and the recovery.’
