The CPA - the UK association for crane and equipment rental companies - has appointed Stu McInroy as chief executive designate. He will take over from Kevin Minton, when he retires later this year.
McInroy is currently chief executive of the Road Safety Markings Association, a role he has held since joining the association in early 2018. He will make the move to the CPA no later than the beginning of July.
McInroy began his working life in 1988 with the Royal Air Force, becoming a wing commander before retiring in 2009, having served for 21 years. He was then appointed as general secretary of the Bookmakers Committee, which was established by government statute to recommend the categories, rates and conditions of the horseracing Levy Scheme each year. In 2016 he took over as chief executive of the National Pawnbrokers Association, leaving after a year for his current position.
Kevin Minton said: “Personally, I welcome Stu to the business, he has experience of working with government bodies such as CITB, and other trade organisations, and with members face to face as well as on a business to business basis. I will work with him to ensure a smooth transition, with no gaps in service to members.”
CPA president Brian Jones added: “On behalf of CPA Council, I congratulate Stu on his appointment and I wish him every success in his new role. Myself, the chairman and the CPA Council are very much looking forward to him joining the CPA team. The CPA Council is also looking forward to new opportunities and developments, and supporting members under Stu’s direction. This builds on the excellent work that Kevin Minton and the team have carried out for the association.”
