The UK-based Construction Equipment Association (CEA) has appointed Paul Lyons as market information manager.
Lyons has spent 37 years working within the UK steel industry, starting with British Steel and, latterly, with Tata Steel.
Lyons said he saw his role as a small part of a much wider initiative to enhance member value and to deliver greater depth of information. “The CEA already does a huge number of things very well. Their stance on skills and training, sustainability and exports is admirable, and the networking opportunities they provide are unparalleled.”
He added, “My job will be to use my analytical skills to gather market information – demand levels and forecasts – and to provide that information to members in a readily-available, easy-to-understand format.”
