The British Plastics Federation (BPF) has appointed Mike Boswell as vice-president with immediate effect.
Boswell, managing director of Plastribution since 2000, was elected before the organisation’s annual general meeting in London.
He has been chairman of the BPF’s Polymer Distributors Group for several years, serving on the organisation’s Council and the strategy and finance committee.
Boswell will support BPF President Philip Watkins in his duties after Watkins was re-elected for a further one year of office.
Boswell said: “The Vice-Presidency of the BPF is an opportunity to help the industry to seize its future and to promote the great story of plastics.
“I am very much looking forward to supporting Philip Watkins in his mission to have our industry recognised as a strategic asset in our manufacturing economy.”
