MPA Strengthens Board on 10th Anniversary as Membership Continues to Climb

As the Mineral Products Association (MPA) reaches its 10th anniversary, the Board is delighted to announce the appointment of three new Directors, James Day (Managing Director, Day Group), Brian Perry (Managing Director, Morris & Perry (Gurney Slade)) and Richard Stansfield (CEO Singleton Birch).

All three currently sit on MPA's Council. Brian Perry chairs MPA's South West Region, Richard Stansfield chairs the British Lime Association and James Day is a former chair of 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 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. Building consensus is in our operating DNA and with record membership now at 530 companies, in our complete family, we are now recognised 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."
