At each Annual General meeting a Chairman, a Vice Chairman, a Secretary, a Treasurer and other such Honorary Officers are elected by Corporate member representatives.
Mathew Spiller - Chairman
I come from an engineering background, that led me into the world of membranes. For just over 10 years I was Technical sales manager at one of the World’s leading Tensile Fabric Structure companies. This role included specifying membranes based upon the customers requirements and the performance requirements of the structure, taking wind loading’s, uplift, and snow loadings into account amongst other factors. In this role I worked on many prestigious projects including the Millennium Dome (now the o2), several London 2012 Olympic venues and also two World record structures, the world’s largest Disco Ball and the world’s largest snow globe. From this role I moved on to construction membranes, primarily damp proofing and gas membranes. I developed the first BBA certified hydrocarbon (VOC) membrane and provided technical support both internally and to installers, distributors and specifiers. I joined the A Proctor Group in 2021 as the National Technical Sales Manager for the Ground Gas Division to provide advice and guidance to installers and architects on all things gas membrane related as well as presentations and CPD’s to architects, engineers and professional groups with a ground gas interest. More recently, I have joined Capital Valley Plastics as their Technical Director.
