MPA appoints new board members
Association strengthens its board on tenth anniversary as membership continues to climb
AS the Mineral Products Association (MPA) reaches its 10th anniversary, the board has announced the appointment of three new directors: James Day, managing director of Day Group; Brian Perry, managing director of Morris & Perry (Gurney Slade); and Richard Stansfield, chief executive officer of Singleton Birch.
All three currently sit on the MPA Council. Brian Perry chairs the MPA’s South West Region, Richard Stansfield chairs the British Lime Association and James Day is a former chair of the MPA’s London and South East Region.
MPA chief executive Nigel Jackson said: ‘We are delighted that James, Brian and Richard have joined the board. They are all active within the Association and will strengthen the board by bringing differing product expertise as well as geographical diversity.
‘We are pleased to be marking our 10th anniversary in this way. Over the last 10 years the MPA has placed unity at the centre of its operating model and governance. The union of small medium and large companies covering all parts of the UK and all mineral products is almost without parallel in Europe and possibly beyond.’
Mr Jackson continued: ‘Building consensus is in our operating DNA and with record membership now at 530 companies, in our complete family, we are now recognized as the sectoral trade association for the whole industry.
‘Our commitment to ‘Driving Change, Raising Standards and Improving Perceptions’ is acting as the vehicle to achieve our vision for 2025 ‘to be valued as an essential and economically, socially and environmentally responsible industry of significance to the economy and our way of life’.
‘We are currently reviewing and refreshing our operating model and resources to ensure we remain fully fit for the challenges that will be posed over the next 10 years.’
