    standards for communities, the environment, and the construction industry’s
    workforce.

    “My career has been focused on
    engaging with organisations to raise standards across a range of industries. I
    look forward to working with organisations who are part of the Scheme and those
    that influence engagement with the Scheme, to help extend its reach and
    influence even further.”
