We need a diverse range of talent, in terms of skills, experience and personal background, and I’m sure both Tony and Sophie will strengthen our decision-making at this critical time. With the challenges we face through Covid-19, and with a new CITB strategic plan in development, they will play a leading role in ensuring there is a strong skills-based recovery for construction.”
