Henry Mott has resigned as president of CEPA, the European Pest Management Solutions Professional Association, after a three year tenure.
Following his resignation, former vice president Marc Aubry has been voted as president and Monica Biglietto as vice-president of CEPA until the next elections, which are planned for 2023.
In his role, Mr Mott oversaw the launch of several initiatives and worked with stakeholders to support the sector and share key information on operating during the pandemic, such as a tracker to highlight which countries had officially declared that pest managers would be allowed to continue their work during lockdowns.
Ian Andrew, BPCA chief executive and co-chair of the CEPA Professionalisation Working Group, said: “Henry has been instrumental in moving CEPA to where it needs to be, lobbying effectively in the corridors of Brussels to raise the profile and importance of the pest control sector in maintaining public health.
“Some vital governance changes have been successfully delivered during his tenure which will put CEPA on a much firmer footing for those who follow him. It has been a pleasure working alongside Henry for at least part of this journey.”
