EEMUA is pleased to announce the appointment of Matt Cleaver to its board of directors as a non-executive member Director.

Matt Cleaver appointed Chair of EEMUA Council

The EEMUA Board provides leadership for carrying out the aims and objectives of the Association, primarily to help members and stakeholders worldwide to improve the safety, efficiency and compliance of some of the world's most important industrial assets.

Matt is Principal Mechanical Engineer at Sellafield Ltd, based in north-west England, and is the company’s Lead Representative to EEMUA and Chair of the EEMUA Council, the senior body in EEMUA setting the overall direction and policy of the Association.

On his appointment Matt said: “I firmly believe that organisations like EEMUA play a vital role in facing the challenges being put to the engineering profession now and in the near future and so I am pleased to start my term on the EEMUA Board, where I can help guide and support their work. Combined with my role as Chair of the member Council I also aim to further contribute to an effective relationship between the Board and members. I am looking forward to the opportunity to broaden my experience within a new environment, and learn new skills”.

EEMUA would like to thank Mark Child who has stood down from the EEMUA Board after serving as a non-executive member Director for three and a half years. Mark made many valuable contributions to the Association during his term, bringing his experience and providing guidance to help further the mission of the organisation.

Commenting on the changes, John Whitfield, EEMUA Chair said: “I am pleased to welcome Matt to the Board. I wish him every success in this exciting appointment and look forward to his active participation driving the organisation forward. I would also like to say a big thank you to Mark for his recent tenure as an EEMUA Director. Mark brought a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role which will be missed. I wish him well for the future”.
