MPA CEO Nigel Jackson said: ‘I am delighted that Jeremy is joining the MPA team as Chair of UK Concrete. Whilst at Tarmac he played a major role in developing the thinking within the sector on the promotion of concrete’s sustainability credentials and is a natural and passionate champion for what is the world’s most sought-after man-made material. Working closely with the UK Concrete team and supported by the combined resources of MPA the industry is signalling its determination to go ‘on the front foot’ to defend and promote the use of essential concrete in the built environment using hard evidence and integrity. Jeremy’s extensive commercial experience and industry knowledge significantly reinforces the MPA effort to take on the challenges posed by global warming and the changing construction agenda’.
