The Brick Development Association (BDA) has announced the appointment of Michael Ankers OBE as its incoming chairman. Mr Ankers, who served as the BDA's chief executive from 1995 to 1998, will rejoin the Association in December of this year, following the retirement of Alan Baxter.

With over 40 years’ experience in various industry sectors, Mr Anker most recently held the position of chief executive of the Construction Products Association which he established as a highly effective representative body for that £50bn industry during his 13-year tenure. In the course of his career, he has held various positions within government departments as well as serving as director of the Chartered Institute of Building.

Mr Anker said: "I am honoured to have been invited to chair the Association. The brick industry has an important part to play in the recovery of the construction industry and particularly the creation of the additional housing that politicians in all the major political parties recognise the country urgently needs. These are exciting and challenging times for the brick industry, and the Brick Development Association has an important role to play.  I am very much looking forward to playing my part in this."
