Siobhan McKelvey elected President of Eurobitume

Siobhan McKelvey from Nynas was elected President of Eurobitume at the European Bitumen Association’s recent EGM in Brussels.

Siobhan McKelvey was elected President at the European Bitumen Association’s recent EGM in Brussels, where José Luis Prieto Menéndez from Cepsa was appointed Vice President and Markus Spiegl from OMV was elected Treasurer.

- A lot of hard work over the last year has achieved great steps forward for the development of Eurobitume. One of my key priorities is to continue to build on this strong foundation, support the full implementation of the new organisation and demonstrate the additional value it will offer, says Siobhan McKelvey.

Siobhan, previously Eurobitume Vice President, took over from Carl Robertus, who stepped down at the EGM having made a very valuable contribution in support of the development of Eurobitume’s organisation and membership.

In their new positions, Siobhan, Jose Luis and Markus will champion the efficient, effective and safe use of refined bitumen in road, industrial and building applications throughout Europe on behalf of Eurobitume members. They will also help drive the continued integration of Eurobitume, creating an even more efficient and effective association, with a stronger voice, to represent the interests of members.

Eurobitume President Siobhan McKelvey is Marketing Director for Nynas Bitumen, sits on the Organising Committee for the 6th International Eurasphalt & Eurobitume Congress (which takes place in Prague on 1-3 June 2016) and has also chaired Eurobitume’s PR & Communications Committee since 2006.
