Rachel Eade MBE will become the first woman to take the helm of the UK Metals Council (UKMC), which initially began life 20 years ago as the Metals Forum and today represents more than 11,100 companies and supports more than 200 billion pounds of UK GDP.
With Rachel Eade, one of manufacturing’s leading champions and business support professionals has been appointed as the new Chair of the UK Metals Council (UKMC).
The supply chain expert replaces Chris McDonald, the Chief Executive of the Materials Processing Institute, and will look to build on his outstanding work in developing UKMC as truly representative of the sector and a valued partner of Government.
Using her 20+years’ experience in the automotive, aerospace and rail industries, she will look to support companies to overcome unprecedented economic challenges and energy price rises that could see some bills quadruple overnight.
Eade’s focus will also be on maximising the innovation in the sector and how it can develop technologies and skills that support the move towards Net Zero by 2050.
“This is a very exciting challenge and gives me the chance to work with influential trade associations, member companies and academia to shape how we navigate the issues whilst making the most of the opportunities,” explained Eade, who is also currently Supply Chain Lead at Birmingham City University.
