Brian Madderson PRA

Since Madderson’s appointment as chairman in 2010, he has led the PRA, and re-established the CWA in 2016, which turned out to be particularly relevant in 2020 due to the pandemic restrictions.

PRA has retained 70 percent of the top 50 independent petrol retailers in membership, regional committees have been established in both Northern Ireland and Scotland and positive relations have been formed with key government officials and politicians in all four home countries.

In addition, Madderson has also sat on the RMI board for over nine years.

Peter Johnson, RMI Chairman said, “During the period Brian has been chair, he has fulfilled all the expectations required of the position and worked tirelessly to improve and grow the federation and its associations.

“It has been a pleasure to work with Brian, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours”.

Gordon Balmer was appointed as Executive Director of the PRA and CWA in May 2021.

  1. Riddle me this, Batman. Who’s worked tirelessly and fulfilled expectations but still presided over the biggest industry crisis in decades with blaming customers (mainland UK only not NI) as his only answer?
