The British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) has confirmed that managing director and co-owner of Reabrook, Tony Brealey, has been appointed the new Chairman of the association.
The decision will see Mr Brealey replace Sebastian Alvarez, who has been in the post for two years, this summer.
Having previously been the Chair of the Commercial and Planning Committee as well as the Vice-Chairman of BAMA, Mr Brealey has a wealth of experience to utilise in his new role as James Smith steps into his vacated position as Vice-Chairman after 14 years with Summit Packaging Solutions.
Patrick Heskins, BAMA chief executive, said: “I am pleased to welcome both Tony and James to their new roles.”
“As the new Chairman, Tony brings four decades of experience in the aerosol sector to the position and will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of BAMA and the aerosol industry during what is set to be a challenging period.”
In his new role, Mr Brealey will target delivering the association’s 2020 strategy and working with members and partners of the association, in addition to improving relationships with sister bodies abroad to enable a sustainable aerosol industry.
Mr Brealey commented: “The aerosol sector has demonstrated sustained growth in the last six years, 2017 being another record year for the industry with more than 1.56bn aerosol cans filled in the UK.”
“As Chairman, I look forward to working more closely with all of BAMA’s members and partners in the coming months as we seek to strengthen relationships in the UK and abroad and safeguard the future of what remains an extremely important sector within UK manufacturing.”
