The Mineral Products Association (MPA) has appointed three council members as directors to mark its tenth tenth anniversary. These include: James Day (managing director, Day Group), Brian Perry (managing director, Morris & Perry (Gurney Slade)) and Richard Stansfield (CEO Singleton Birch).
Three members currently sit on MPA’s council. Perry chairs MPA’s South West region, Stansfield chairs the British Lime Association and Day is a former chair of MPA’s London and South East Region.
Nigel Jackson, MPA chief executive, says: “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 ten years.”
