The RHA has a new man at the top, Moreton Cullimore having been appointed as chairperson at the association's AGM. Coming up to his 42nd birthday, Cullimore is the youngest holder of the post, his father Roger also having been involved in the organisation, being a former RHA regional board member.
He is the third generation at the helm of the Gloucestershire-based Cullimore Group, founded by and named after his grandfather, Moreton C Cullimore, whose activities centre on quarrying and associated activities. Besides running its own fleet of tippers and mixers, its transport operation includes third-party maintenance and operating an ATF.
Commenting on his appointment, he said: “Cullimore’s have been in haulage for over 90 years and we have been members of the RHA since it was established over 75 years ago. My grandfather, father and myself have always believed that the support provided by such a strong organisation is invaluable. 2020 raised so many challenges and the RHA has supported its members and the industry as a whole throughout both the pandemic and the end of the Brexit transition period.
“I want to thank my predecessor, Ashly McCulla for his work, support and advice and I know that RHA vice-chairperson, Tim Slater and I, working with the Association’s management team can effectively move the industry along the road to recovery”.
