Mace Group chairman and CEO Mark Reynolds has been chosen to succeed Andy Mitchell as CLC co-chair, the Construction Leadership Council has announced today
An independent panel consisting members of the industry, CLC’s Senior Advisors Group and government officials has recommended Mark Reynolds as CLC co-chair.
As of today (23rd June), Reynolds will take up his new role as CLC co-chair and lead with Lee Rowley MP.
Richard Robinson -CEO of Atkins UK and Europe- has also been recommended as deputy co-chair.
Reynolds has an extensive history of leadership in CLC in recent years
As a member of CLC’s Steering Co-Ordination Group, Reynolds shaped the CLC’s 2022 Strategy with its focus on Construct Zero, Building Safety, meeting the skills challenge, and implementing the Construction Playbook. He also chairs the Government’s Construction Skills Delivery Group.
Other recent roles include including jointly chairing the CLC’s People & Skills work stream; and co-ordinating its response to the Covid pandemic.
“The CLC can make a real difference for companies across the whole of the industry”
Reynolds commented: “I have seen first-hand how the CLC can make a real difference for companies across the whole of the industry.”
“We have faced – and continue to face – challenges that no one organisation can tackle on its own, such as the cost of inflation and impact of rising energy prices; global supply chain pressures and ensuring our collective progression to Net Zero. I am also very pleased to be working with Richard Robinson, CEO for Atkins UK and Europe, on this agenda; who will strengthen our collective leadership and capacity in his role as Deputy Co-Chair.”
Construction minister Lee Rowley MP said: “Mark will play a vital role in the months and years ahead as we work to decarbonise the industry through Construct Zero, support it through the Building Safety Act’s introduction, and deliver the first sector-wide skills plan for construction. I would also like to pay tribute to Andy Mitchell for his outstanding leadership to date, which puts the CLC in a strong position to keep delivering for the sector.”
