Justin Ratcliffe, chief executive of the Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB), is leaving the trade association after 19 years’ service at the end of July.

Since 2001 he has been the driving force behind the organisation becoming the recognised voice of the aluminium in building sector in the UK.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with this great organisation, and I am proud of what has been achieved,” said Justin. “Whilst sad to be leaving, I have spent over half my working life here and it is now time for a fresh challenge. I am especially grateful to all the members for their incredible support over the years and to the strong staff team.”

Thanking Justin for his long and loyal service, Mo Panam, president of CAB, said: “He has used his immense energy, tenacity and skill to develop CAB into a highly respected and effective Trade Association. After substantial growth in 2019 and with major new initiatives launching in 2020, Justin leaves us in a strong position where we can continue to offer excellent value for membership going forward. We wish him every success in his future career.”
