The Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) has completed its executive team with the appointment of Paul Adeleke as its Communications and Policy Director. Adeleke will be based in London and will begin the role in late October.
Currently the Interim Global Communications Director at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, Adeleke has previously worked for Philip Morris International in a range of senior communications and reputation roles. Before this, Adeleke worked in various communication roles in the government and business sectors in the UK, including advising on political, policy, and communications issues.
“I am delighted to welcome Paul to the GCCA,” said Benjamin Sporton, Chief Executive of the GCCA. “His experience in developing communication and outreach strategies will be fundamental as we build the GCCA’s global profile. Paul’s adept approach to developing partnerships and building thought leadership will be vital to delivering on the GCCA’s objectives on concrete positioning, innovation, and sustainability.”
“I am immensely excited to join the GCCA,” said Adeleke. “With significant population growth and accelerating urbanisation, it is clear concrete has a vital role to play in providing the critical infrastructure the world will need. I am greatly looking forward to working with the industry, and other voices, to explain the importance of concrete and innovation in helping to shape a sustainable world.”
Following this appointment, the GCCA executive team is completed. Adeleke will be joining Sporton as CEO, Claude Loréa as Cement Director, and Andrew Minson as Concrete and Sustainable Construction Director.
The GCCA was launched in January 2018 and is dedicated to developing and strengthening the cement and concrete sector’s contribution to sustainable construction.
