MTA appoints James Selka as its new CEO to succeed Dewhurst

05 June, 2014

The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) has appointed James Selka to be its new chief executive officer, succeeding Graham Dewhurst who is retiring after seven years in the post.

Selka has more than 25 years of manufacturing experience, including 13 years as managing director of Reliance Precision and, most recently, as production and HR director at the mechanical seals manufacturer, AESSEAL. He is interested in supply chains and logistics as well as corporate finance and improving business performance.

“I believe that James offers a skill set that is complementary to the operational strategy of the MTA,” says the Association’s president, Mark Ridgway, “particularly with respect to developing both the profile and membership of the Association.”

“I’m delighted to be taking up the challenge of leading the MTA into the future,” says Selka. “I’m looking forward to finding out more about the dynamic companies that make up the MTA and delivering a future in which we are even more focussed on delivering value for our members and standing up for our sector.”
