BPF's Director General Philip Law said: “The new group will combine the great traditions of both PAFA and the BPF to create a very powerful platform for this industry sector, massively increasing its comparable advantage.”
Barry Turner, the CEO of PAFA added: “This move will create a single, more powerful point of contact with governments across the UK, and will enable us to leverage the combined expertise of both organizations and ensure that the communication and services to members are further enhanced.”
The group, under the leadership of Barry Turner, will be fully operational starting January 1, 2016, and will operate within the BPF's legal structure.
