The UK’s Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) - which among other things is the country’s crane association - has appointed Kevin Minton as chief executive.
Minton replaces Colin Wood, who has made the decision to step down from the position and retire, although he will be available on a consulting basis during a transition period. Minton has worked for the CPA since 2007 and was initially senior manager before being promoted to director in 2013. In his new role he will report to CPA’s governing council and work alongside company president Brian Jones.
Jones said: "Kevin has already taken the lead on many projects which have moved CPA forward. On behalf of CPA Council, I congratulate Kevin on his appointment, and I wish him every success in his new role."
