Ben Massey to leave BPCA as Marketing and Communications Manager

After a successful tenure as BPCA’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Ben Massey has announced that he will be leaving the Association in February.

We will now be looking to recruit someone to develop and manage the marketing and communication activities for the Association.

Ben Massey joined the Association’s Senior Management team in July 2016, and since then has been instrumental in adding value to BPCA and its members.

Ben has overseen the redevelopment of the Association’s brand, including its website, magazine and communication channels, as well as introducing initiatives to the membership community such as The BPCA Printshop, Contract Sharing Network, and the British Pest Management Awards.

In his 2.5 years with BPCA, Ben has been instrumental in winning the Association, Trade Association Forum’s Best Practice Award for Social Media (2018) award and their Best Practice Award for PPC magazine (2017) award. Ben himself, was named Young Marketing Executive of the Year at the MemCom Awards (2016) within his first 12 months of joining the Association.

Ben said:

“Pest Management is an industry where there is a real difference being made to society, and I think this is a reflection on the special people that make up the professional community.

“I’d like to thank all of the folks that have supported me in a relatively short period of time. This includes members, supporters, suppliers and readers of PPC magazine, and particularly members of BPCA’s Executive Board and committee structure. However my biggest thank you goes to the fantastic BPCA Staff team who work tirelessly behind the scenes.

“I’d like to think I leave BPCA’s brand in better shape than when I arrived, ready for someone new to come in and realise the potential of the many exciting projects and opportunities that lie in wait.”

Ben leaves BPCA to take up a position of Director of Marketing and Communications of a retail trade association.

Ian Andrew, BPCA Chief Exec said:

“In his time at the Association, Ben’s expertise has contributed to too many important projects to be listed here. He has transformed and professionalised the Association's communications both online and in print.

“Ben will be well missed by the many members he’s supported and the Executive Board he’s served.

“Ben’s support and year-round Christmas-cracker jokes will be well missed by the Staff team at every level. We all wish him well with his new venture.

“BPCA’s marketing and communications responsibilities will continue as usual. We’re now actively seeking a new talented and driven Marketing and Communications lead to take over the reins, and continue to grow the Association’s profile and professionalism”.

We have now started recruiting for a Marketing and Communications Manager. Applications close on 8 February.
