British Metals Recycling Association (BMRA) has elected Shane Mellor as its new president and Graeme Carus as his deputy.
Mellor is managing director of Mellor Metals and has been in the industry for 38 years. He initially became involved with the BMRA with the implementation of the end-of-life vehicle directive, and served as legislative policy chairman.
He said: “After a year of change, a lot of work still lies ahead for the BMRA and I hope to serve the interests of members well during my time as president by promoting the sector.”
BMRA’s new deputy president, Graeme Carus, is director of business development at EMR where his responsibilities also include public and regulatory affairs, marketing, communications, producer responsibility and environmental consultancy.
The trade association represents the UK’s £5.6bn metals recycling sector.
