The reorganisation is intended to deliver a cost-effective business focussed on meeting the needs of its customers. The current board and committee structure is being reviewed along with the overall organisation to ensure that there are straightforward and efficient arrangements for conducting business on behalf of industry.
Steve Radley joins CITB from his role as director of policy and external affairs at the manufacturers organisation, EEF. Previously he was chief economist at the Henley Centre and the policy adviser - education and training at the Confederation of British Industry.
CITB chief executive, Adrian Belton, said: “Steve is the first appointment into my new executive team. He will have a major role to play in driving forward a major improvement in the breadth and depth of CITB’s policy thinking and its influence on government.”
Radley said: “Now is a great time to be joining CITB and working with the construction industry. The outlook is much better than it has been for some time. With the housing market recovering, major infrastructure projects coming on stream and new opportunities arising from climate change, new technology and new ways of working, the industry is set for sustained growth. Developing a workforce with the right skills will be critical to exploiting these opportunities. I’m looking forward to working closely with employers across the industry to achieve this.”
