Katie Livesey joins from the Building Research Establishment (BRE) where she was head of responsible sourcing certification business. She worked at BRE for 11 years, primarily on the BES6001 framework standard for responsible sourcing.
Anthesis clients include Crown Paints, AkzoNobel, Holcim, Bovis Lend Lease, Balfour Beatty, Kingfisher, Network Rail and Eurostar.
Ms Livesey said: “Anthesis Group is a dynamic and growing company which already has an impressive portfolio of construction clients. I’m excited about developing our business offering in this area. I was really impressed by the way Anthesis offers integrated service offerings for companies such as Tesco. We’re keen to work with companies who take sustainability seriously and we’re actively looking for new opportunities in construction.”
Anthesis chief executive Stuart McLachlan said: “Katie’s appointment builds on Anthesis’ focus on supply chain management, product stewardship and sustainable chemistry. Responsible sourcing is becoming a high priority for many of our clients, many of whom are already facing challenges relating to the rising tide of legislative compliance as well as meeting tightening procurement requirements imposed on them by their customers. We’re excited about Katie joining the team to help us unlock this great opportunity.”
