New NPA Chairman27 March 2012
UK - New chairman of the NPA Board is Yorkshire producer Richard Longthorp. Peter Rollings has been re-elected vice-chairman.
Richard Longthorp succeeds Stewart Houston who did not seek re-election, in deference to NFU concerns about him being chairman of both NPA and BPEX.
The NPA board was elected by NPA Producer Group at its first meeting since the NPA Producer Group elections. Phil Stephenson and Richard Longthorp have replaced John Rowbottom and Charlie Allen.
