SME builders now better represented on CITB Board

June 2018

The appointment of two construction SME representatives to the CITB Board is an important step forward, according to the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).  Commenting on the CITB’s announcement regarding the new appointments to the CITB Board, Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the FMB, said: “I am delighted that FMB member Kevin McLoughlin MBE has been announced as one of two SME representatives on the CITB Board. Kevin has a wealth of knowledge of the industry which will prove crucial in helping to deliver CITB’s Vision 2020. He has more than 30 years’ experience in the building sector and runs a hugely successful decorating firm in London.”

“Prior to this announcement, there was only one SME representative on the CITB Board. Given that SME firms make up 98% of the construction industry and train two-thirds of all apprentices, we have been calling for the CITB Board to be more representative of the full spectrum of firms in our industry. The news that two SME representatives have been appointed is therefore a welcome step in the right direction for an organisation that needs to continue to prioritise reform and make sure that it is listening to all sections of the industry," continued Berry.  "The appointment of Kevin and Robert Williams mean the Board can now better reflect the needs of small construction firms and therefore better serve the industry as a whole.” (Photograph: The London Irish Construction Network
