Prysmian CEO takes over prestigious cable roles
04 July 2012
Paul Atkinson (pictured), CEO of Prysmian Group UK, aims to build on the successful work already delivered as he takes over as President of the British Cables Association (BCA) and Chairman of the Approved Cables Initiative (ACI).
The announcement of the changes at the BCA’s Annual General meeting sees Michael Simms stand down in favour of Paul Atkinson who assumed the role of President of the BCA from 13 June 2012. Members accepted Simms’ resignation with regret, but were unanimous in their support for Atkinson.
After the more formal aspects of the AGM, Atkinson was effusive in his praise for Simms’ work on behalf of the BCA and ACI.
Atkinson said: “In the four years Michael has been president, the BCA has grown in influence and the ACI, a vital part of the BCA, has gone from a wish list item to a fully supported active campaign against unsafe and defective cables entering the UK market.
“The success, measured by the number of incidents of defective cable that have come to light over the past four years and the growing recognition of the ACI and its relentless campaign, is a tribute to Michael’s energy, enthusiasm and drive. The ACI is an on-going education and communication programme that will succeed in its objective and the whole of the electrical supply chain has benefited from Michael’s endeavours.
“Personally I aim to build upon the work Michael has delivered and hope I can call upon him, as the immediate past President, for assistance and support in the international arena, especially in promoting the ACI.”
