In recognition of his contribution to the cleaning industry and the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA), Shaun Chatterton has been named a life vice president of the CHSA.
Chatterton has been an active member of the CHSA since its formation. He has served as chairman of the Association and is now the driving force behind the annual Golf Day. This year Chatterton persuaded former Premier League and England footballer, Ian Wright to take part and in the process helped raise a record £6,500 for the chairman’s charity, Helping Treat Cancer Together Committee.
Stephen Harrison, chairman of the CHSA, commented:
“Shaun’s contribution has been exceptional over many years. He has been instrumental in sustaining the CHSA and making it the influential trade association it is today.
“We are delighted to recognise his contribution by making him a life vice president of the Association and are looking forward to his continued involvement.”
Speaking about his appointment Chatterton said:
“The CHSA has had a significant impact in the cleaning and hygiene sector, driving up standards and providing a great forum for networking. I’ve loved being part of the Association and feel honoured to be recognised with this appointment.”
Chatterton founded CPD plc, one of the UK’s largest independent distributors of cleaning and hygiene products, serving clients in the UK, across Europe and around the world. During CPD’s 25-year trading history, the company’s turnover grew every year and has achieved a cumulative total in excess of £200 million.
Chatterton is now CEO of Floreon. Floreon is a specially formulated compound, which is added to standard bioplastic polylactic acid (PLA) to create an innovative material with a sustainable origin and a range of end of life options.
