The UK’s Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) has appointed Steven Mulholland as its new chief executive.

Mulholland has been a council member of the rental association for 10 years and is also the current chairman. He is also the founder of Mulholland Plant Services, which became part of Thomas Plant Hire last year. 

Brian Jones, president, CPA, said, “On behalf of CPA Council, I congratulate Steven and I wish him every success in his new role as CPA Chief Executive.

“Steven has a tremendous amount of experience in the plant rental industry and having been the CPA Chair for over six years and a Council Member for several more years, is familiar with the Association, the CPA team and many of our members.

“Steven has formed part of several working groups, including the Plant Sector Representative Organisation (PSRO) and those carried out with CITB. He has also been a board member of the Scottish Plant Owners Association (SPOA) for many years. I am confident he will lead CPA to new levels of support for our members’ businesses.”

Steven Mulholland, who assumes the role in August, added, “I am delighted to continue my work with the CPA and look forward to commencing my new role as chief executive. In my view, the most important factor is continuity.

“CPA Council Members, CPA staff, along with the Executive Team, have all done a fantastic job to get our association to where it is today. It has grown in numbers and improved in professionalism in the services we are able to offer members, and this must continue in an ever-changing world.”
