Embracing the vision

Tim Doggett, CEO of the CBA said: “Since becoming CEO nearly two years ago, we have embarked on a period of evolution, and I want to thank the entire team for embracing this vision. It is extremely rewarding to be recognised by your peers, as we continue to strive for excellence in the support we provide not only our members, but the chemical supply chain and the wider chemical industry as a whole.”

Kate Mingay, managing director of Dakram Materials and Chair of the CBA said: “This is a very special highlight of my time as Chair of the Chemical Business Association, I am so proud of the team and that they have received this well-deserved recognition for all of their hard work and many achievements in representing members and the chemical supply chain.”

Delivering for members

Emily Wallace, chief executive of TAF and Chair of the judging panel said: “The CBA has clearly had a fantastic year delivering excellent member engagement and sector representation. The judges commented on their success in engaging members effectively, mobilising quickly on key issues, and were impressed with how they collaborated with multiple Government departments to deliver for members.”
