Cement maker Cemex has raided its trade body, the British Cement Association (BCA), to fill a new director of PA and corporate responsibility for Europe role.
Martin Casey left the BCA last month, and has been replaced as head of public affairs and external comms by Damian Testa.
Testa was previously secretary-general at the UK Flour Milling Association.
The cement industry’s challenges include lobbying to ensure the product is accepted as a sustainable alternative to other building materials. Target audiences include MPs and government departments including the DTI and Defra.
