Ben Wilson, Business Leader at MPM Ltd, Bramley Leeds, has grown up with composites, being part of a family business established by his father in 1978. His collaborative leadership style and sheer determination, combined with his ability to create an award winning culture in business are some of the reasons that Ben has been voted to lead the Association as it strives to achieve its goals.
Under his direction MPM Ltd has more than trebled turnover with 20% year on year growth and is still experiencing record sales and beating targets every month, despite a devastating fire which destroyed the business only one year ago.
Having been part of the Composites UK Board since 2015, Ben has a clear vision for his term as Chairman and looks to support the fantastic team and Board already in place.
Ben said; “I am delighted to have been voted in as chairman at Composites UK, they are a fantastic supporter of our industry. With my two years as Chairman I am dedicated to ensuring members from across all sectors get value from their membership, whilst supporting growth in the UK composites market. I am particularly passionate about apprenticeships and will be looking to get a level 2 aligned with the level 3 that we already have in place.”
Ben is also involved in the organisation and promotion of the Leeds manufacturing Festival which has just relaunched for 2019 – keen to connect young people to the manufacturing sector in the area and improve the skills gap that currently exists in this sector.
