As the editor of Construction News, Rebecca is working to ensure it is THE champion for the construction industry - as well as its critical friend.
In her weekly editor's comment, she focuses on what is best about the industry, and where it should work harder.
Rebecca is particularly keen to highlight innovation, collaboration and to work with the industry to help promote its importance to the wider economy.
She believes passionately that everyone in the industry should take responsibility for improving the image of construction, particularly to attract young people choosing a career. This is the motivation for the 'Love Construction' campaign launched by Construction News in July 2013.
