Dave Foster - President

Experienced oil and gas industry professional Dave Foster was elected as Eurobitume President at the Association’s Spring Meeting in March 2023.

A Shell employee since 1989, Dave has worked in the organisation’s Retail, Supply-Chain and Lubricants businesses. For the last 15+ years Dave has held commercial roles within the Shell Bitumen business, where he is currently the Country Business Manager and responsible for the UK and Ireland cluster. The promotion of a strong HSSE culture, technological developments and a sustainable portfolio of products play an integral part of Dave’s day-to-day activities.

Dave is a former Eurobitume Treasurer and has chaired the local Eurobitume UK initiative for a number of years, working closely with his counterparts within the UK industry to actively promote the safe use of bitumen.

He also sits on the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA) committee, an alliance between Eurobitume UK and the Mineral Products Association. This has had noticeable success highlighting the need for continuous investment in the UK road infrastructure through vehicles such as the ALARM survey, the Local Government Association and All-Party Parliamentary Group networks.
