Michael Ankers to step down as CPA chief in 2012

Chief executive of the Construction Products Association Michael Ankers has announced that he will retire in April 2012.

Mr Ankers has worked within the industry for more than 20 years and was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday honours list for ‘services to the construction industry’ in 2009.

CPA chairman Bill Bolsover said: “Michael was instrumental in setting up the Construction Products Association in 1999 and under his leadership it has become established as one of the leading trading associations in this country.

“The industry will be extremely sorry to lose Michael’s knowledge and skills and we will be looking to identify a high-profile and experienced successor who will be able to build on all that Michael has achieved.”

Prior to his involvement in the CPA, Mr Ankers also held positions as a director at the Chartered Institute of Building and as chief executive of the Brick Development Association.

Mr Ankers will retire from his position at the CPA’s Annual General Meeting in April 2012.

The CPA represents 85% by value, of all manufacturers and suppliers of construction products in the UK, including more than 20 of the largest companies in the industry and more than 40 sector trade associations.
