Revealed: The Considerate Constructors Scheme has appointed seven directors following a major shake-up of its board.
Construction Products Association chief executive Diana Montgomery, chairman of both Nolan Associates and the Construction Industry Council John Nolan and Construction Industry Council chief executive Graham Watts have joined the CCS board.
They will be led by CCS executive chairman Isabel Martinson, who joined the organisation in July.
The board will also include four independent non-executive directors, including Interserve design manager Roma Agrawal, Fitzgerald Contractors managing director Nick Coley, Grays Group marketing group strategy director Simon Harvey, and Travis Perkins health and safety director Richard Byrne.
Former chairman Mike Petter will retain his place on the board, with Mr Petter heading up the organisation’s new service and performance committee that will oversee the operational management of the scheme.
Construction News reported in September that the organisation was looking for up to 12 new board members in a bid to “take the scheme to the next level”.
Members will be required to attend at least four CCS board meetings annually and will be paid £3,000 a year, plus additional payment for sub-committee appearances.
Ms Martinson said: “The new directors bring experience and expertise across a wide spectrum of disciplines and industries, as well as a passion for the construction industry and the built environment.
“They are all fully committed to the ethos of the scheme’s vision to further improve the reputation and image of the industry and to change perceptions held by government, the general public, educators, careers advisers, parents and individuals, including the next generation and career changers.”
