The Construction Products Association (CPA) has named Carl Arntzen as its new chairman. Carl succeeds John Sinfield whom has stepped down from the role after three years as chairman.

Carl is currently CEO for Bosch Thermotechnology, having originally joined in 1984 as a product development engineer. After working in product development for several years, he then moved into more commercial orientated roles in product management and then marketing management.

Following national and international roles throughout the sales, marketing and service organisation, Carl was appointed managing director in October 2011 and CEO in 2015 for the whole of Bosch Thermotechnology’s operations in the UK and Ireland.

This includes the residential business operating under the Worcester Bosch brand and the commercial industrial business operating under the Bosch brand.

Dr Diana Montgomery, chief executive of the Construction Products Association, said: “The CPA are delighted to welcome Carl on board. His extensive track record together with his understanding of the industry will play a tremendous role as we begin to navigate a post-EU landscape. We wish him every success in his new role with us.”

Carl Arntzen added: “I am delighted to join the CPA as Chairman and look forward to contributing to its growth; and being an advocate for what is such an important UK industry. We will continue to work with government to ensure the construction sector remains competitive and relevant for industry colleagues; it’s going to be a challenging but exciting process. I am impressed by the talent here who are making a significant contribution in helping to shape the CPA.”
