BCF grows influence on global coatings industry stage
The World Coatings Council is made up of members representing associations from the United States, China, European Union, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Japan, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Turkey, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
The Council, which provides a forum for exchange and cooperation on major issues and priorities facing the industry, has established itself as a global voice with the United Nations, Governments and NGOs. “Following the UK’s decision to leave the EU, the BCF are keen to contribute to the significant issues affecting the coatings industry worldwide. It is a great honour to have the trust of my industry colleagues from associations around the world,” said Tom Bowtell.
Expected presidency in 2022
Andy Doyle, President of the World Coatings Council and CEO of the American Coatings Association, commented: “Tom’s election as Vice President of the World Coatings Council was unanimously supported by industry colleagues, and I’m delighted to have such an experienced and proactive deputy in my final year as President.”
It is expected that after a 12-month term as Vice President, Tom Bowtell will take over the role of President at the next annual meeting of the WCC in March 2022.
