Europe |

Eurobitume is delighted to announce that Dave Foster, Country Business Manager for Shell’s Bitumen business in the UK and Ireland, has been elected as the next Eurobitume President.

Previously Eurobitume Vice President and a former Eurobitume Treasurer, Dave took over from Repsol’s Francisco Lucas, whose 12-month tenure as Eurobitume President ended at the association’s recent Annual General Meeting in Madrid held on 29th March 2023.

Dave is an experienced bitumen and asphalt industry professional and chaired Eurobitume’s local representation in the UK for a number of years. He sits on the committee of the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA), an alliance between Eurobitume UK and the Mineral Products Association (MPA).

During his year-long term as President, Dave’s priorities include highlighting bitumen’s credentials as a sustainable construction material; ensuring Eurobitume continues to meet the needs of its members and stakeholders in a dynamic environment; and supporting the delivery of the eagerly awaited 8th E&E Congress, which will take place in Budapest on 19th to 21st June, 2024.

He will continue to position Eurobitume as the first reference for bitumen in Europe and focus upon the importance of effective communications, so that the voice of the bitumen industry in Europe is heard clearly by all of its target audiences.
