CTPA Board of Directors

"During 2021, I and my DGAG colleagues will be helping to raise the profile of CTPA and its Director-General as it confronts misinformation and meets the challenges ahead, as the credible authority for a vibrant and responsible UK industry, trusted to act responsibly for the consumer."

Executive Comment - Director-General Advisory Group (DGAG)

Working with this global-facing, future-thinking Association has provided valuable insight allowing us to understand what is on the regulatory horizon and the challenges that we, in our businesses, must pay attention to now in order to continue to thrive and deliver excellent products to our consumers. As members of CTPA, each company can maximise its membership by getting involved, signing-up for events and staying abreast of expected changes through the comprehensive members’ website. Respected worldwide, the CTPA is playing a pivotal role with the UK Government to ensure that the industry can continue to trade internationally and that the UK continues to be seen as a good place to do business.
