Stu McInroy

THE Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) has announced the appointment of Stu McInroy as the organisation’s new chief executive.

He will succeed Kevin Minton in the second quarter of 2023 and joins from the Road Safety Markings Association (RSMA), where he has been chief executive since 2018.

Stu will report to the CPA’s governing council and work alongside CPA president Brian Jones and chairman Steven Mulholland. Kevin Minton, who announced his retirement in August 2022, will work alongside him for a period of time to allow a smooth handover.

CPA president Brian Jones said, “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 Stu joining the CPA team. CPA council is also looking forward to new opportunities and developments, and supporting CPA members under Stu’s direction. This builds on the excellent work that Kevin Minton and the CPA team have carried out for the association.”

Outgoing chief executive Kevin Minton added, “I am pleased to welcome Stu to the association, and I’m confident that he will lead CPA to new levels of support for our members’ businesses.”

Stu McInroy commented, “I’m delighted to be joining the CPA and look forward very much to working with the CPA council, association members and staff, to protect and promote the interests of the construction plant hire sector.”
