Former chief commercial officer of Clancy, Jon Loveday has been appointed as the new director of infrastructure, enterprise and growth at the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA)

Jon Loveday will start his role at the IPA from early August, leading the team which lies at the heart of the government’s infrastructure agenda to level up and decarbonise the economy.

The IPA supports the delivery of government’s major projects by helping to set them up for success and building delivery capability in departments with projects on the Government Major Projects Portfolio (GMPP).

“I’m pleased to welcome Jon to the IPA, who brings with him a wealth of experience from the infrastructure sector.

“I’m sure Jon will play a major role as we move forward supporting the government’s ambitious agenda.”

Jon Loveday, IPA director of infrastructure, enterprise and growth, added: “I am delighted to be joining the IPA at such an important time.
