Master Plumbers NSW CEO Paul Naylor Announces Retirement

The President of the Master Plumbers and Mechanical Contractors Association of NSW (MPA NSW) Mr. Callum McKay has announced that after some eighteen (18) years of dedicated service, Mr. Paul Naylor will retire this week from his role as Chief Executive Officer at MPA NSW.

Mr. McKay says “Paul has served the Association and represented the plumbing industry more broadly with what can only be described as “unsurpassed” passion, dedication and commitment. His knowledge of the licensing regime, Australian Standards, industrial relations and industry training is second to none. Paul has successfully represented the Association on numerous consultative committees and at various hearings over the years and has influenced policy, practice and law within the industry. Further, he has been responsible for the oversight of the employment and training of literally thousands of MPAL plumbing apprentice employees across NSW”

The Association’s Chief Operating Officer Michael Bennett will now move into the role of General Manager with Mr. Naylor serving in a part time capacity to provide technical advice, advocacy and to consult on licensing issues.

“It has been a pleasure serving the NSW plumbing industry through the Association for such a long period of time” said Mr. Naylor “I have had the very good fortune of establishing excellent relationships with plumbing contractor members as well as numerous Government stakeholders, politicians and regulators alike and I look forward to continuing these relationships, be it in a part time advisory role.”

MPA NSW is one of the strongest specialist contracting organisations in the building and

construction industry and is a highly active and vocal body in trade related matters. One of its main functions is to lobby vigorously on behalf of its membership in protecting and promoting

the interests of the plumbing industry.

MPA NSW has also created a specialist skills centre to pursue excellence in training. Be it secondary school pupils seeking a school-based Apprenticeship, indentured apprentices or

existing people seeking skills recognition.

Master Plumbers Apprentices Limited (MPAL) is a group training company which is the largest employer of apprentice plumbers in NSW and has been in operation since 1982.
