CEF joins the Construction Leadership Council

This week the CLC was restructured to ensure it represented the devolved regions as well as every aspect of the construction trade. CLC is led by Andy Mitchell, chief executive of Thames Tideway remains industry side co-chair of the CLC, alongside Nadhim Zahawi, the junior minister at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy with responsibility for the construction industry.

Andy Mitchell said:

“To support the Task Force, a CLC Senior Advisors Group has been established, along the lines of non-executives of a typical board. This group will provide an even wider representation of different parts of the industry, together with support, challenge and guidance.”

Mark Spence, Managing Director of the CEF said:

“The CLC has played a central role in harnessing the successful efforts of the industry to stay operational during the pandemic as well as leading on initiatives to improve efficiency, skills and growth in UK construction.

This important role for CEF ensures that NI construction will be at the top table of policy and decision making in UK construction, as well as ensuring local issues can be heard and factored into advice to UK government. CEF welcome this appointment and looks forward to working with fellow members of the CLC.”
