The Road Safety Markings Association (RSMA) has announced the appointment of Stu McInroy as its new CEO from next week.
Since 2009 Mr McInroy has led the Bookmakers’ Committee, a statutory body parented by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, and the National Pawnbrokers Association. He represented both organisations at the highest level in commercial, political and public sector environments across a wide variety of government departments, agencies and industry.
Prior to this he was a senior officer in the Royal Air Force, where he worked in programme management, strategic policy, regulation/governance and leading-edge technology.
RSMA chairman Paul Aldridge said: ‘Following an extensive search we are very pleased to have attracted such a high calibre individual to lead the RSMA. In addition to significant experience of working with government, Parliament, regulators and the media, Stu’s experience in training, assessment and safety environments shall be of great benefit to members.’
Mr McInroy said: ‘I look forward to working with the Executive Committee and staff of the RSMA to promote and protect the interests of all members. I shall be engaging extensively with members over the coming weeks and months to ensure that the RSMA continues to provide them with robust and relevant support, whilst developing further its role as the respected voice of the road safety marking sector.’
Mr McInroy will take up the role next Wednesday, 14 March. He succeeds George Lee, who left the RSMA after 20 years’ service in November.
