Current CTPA first vice-chair Anna Bartle, and treasurer Andrew Field will continue in their roles to support the new chair until the current end of term for all roles in June 2024.
Taking over for Debbie Rix, who has moved from her role at Kao and therefore resigned from the CTPA board at the beginning of March 2023, Cheval commented: “I am honored to take the role of CTPA chair and I look forward to continuing to work collaboratively with the talented CTPA team, the wider Board and all members."
Barron commented: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to serve as vice-chair of the CTPA, having been a board member for over five years. Unilever has had a longstanding and strong relationship with the CTPA and I am looking forward to contributing further to the valuable work it undertakes for the industry as a whole.”
