Simon Vivian, Chief Executive of Breedon Aggregates Ltd, has been appointed to the Board of the Mineral Products Association. Breedon Aggregates is the largest independent aggregates company in the UK, employing over 800 people in Central England, East Anglia, Eastern England and Scotland.
Nigel Jackson, Chief Executive MPA, said, “The MPA Board and Council are delighted that Simon Vivian CEO of Breedon Aggregates has accepted the invitation to join the Board of the MPA. This will ensure that the balance of the Board fully reflects and fairly represents the membership of MPA with five major companies being counterbalanced by five strong SME members. Simon’s vast experience of the industry coupled with his extensive knowledge of trade association matters as a former Chairman of QPA will undoubtedly strengthen the MPA’s development of policies which protect all members’ interests in these difficult times.”
He added, “The Governance of the MPA is one of its key strengths with a General Council of over 30 which brings members of the Board together with the Chairmen of the 12 product groups, the four core committees and MPA The Concrete Centre together with the five Chairmen of the English Regions, traditionally chaired by SMEs, MPA Wales, MPA Scotland, QPA Northern Ireland and now British Precast (BPCF).”
In addition to his current role as Chief Executive of Breedon Aggregates, Simon is a previous Chairman of the Quarry Products Association and was formerly a Director of Hanson PLC, running its European business and Chief Executive of Mowlem PLC. Breedon Aggregates was created when AIM listed Marwyn Materials acquired the UK business of the old Ennstone PLC in September 2010.
Simon said, “I am enjoying my return to the industry after a few years absence and look forward to making a full contribution to the MPA and the important work that it does representing the interests of its membership.”
