Bill Brett, chairman of the Brett Group, has been appointed chairman of the Mineral Products Association (UK) for the next two years. He will be taking over from Dyfrig James, and of MPA’s four chairmen to-date, is the second to serve from an independent company.

Nigel Jackson, Chief Executive MPA, paid tribute to Dyfrig’s contribution to MPA over the last two years saying: “Members have appreciated Dyfrig’s inclusive approach and the efforts he has made to engage with all parts of the MPA, particularly in the Regions and of course his beloved Wales. Dyfrig has continued the tradition of communicating how it is possible to take a wider sectoral view for the good of all companies.”

On his new position, Mr Brett, who has a wide range of commercial interests and industry involvement, said: “I am passionate about strengthening the unity of this great sector which is so important to the UK and the recovery.”
