Hanson’s Rick Green appointed as new AIA chairman

Hanson Contracting’s managing director Rick Green has been appointed as the new chairman of the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA). He has taken over from Alan Mackenzie who has stepped down after five years in the position.

With a background in civil engineering, Rick has over 25 years’ operational and commercial experience in the highway construction and maintenance sector and has held a number of senior positions within the asphalt industry.

He will drive the AIA’s continued campaign to increase awareness of the asphalt industry and to promote the uses and benefits of asphalt to specifiers, policymakers and the general public.

“I am delighted to have been appointed as chairman of the AIA,” said Rick. “It is recognised as an authoritative voice on industry issues and has played a significant role in promoting the benefits of planned, preventative maintenance and the need for long-term funding commitments from central government.”
