New CBI construction chair
Skanska UK chief executive Gregor Craig will be the new head of the CBI Construction Council.
Craig succeeds Sir James Wates who has been chair of the Construction Council for the last three years.
Craig said: “It’s a great privilege to be taking on this role, especially at this critical time for the construction industry.
“We are heading towards a new relationship with the European Union and, although the pandemic has had a well-documented impact, there is also a lot to learn about what the industry can achieve when it is really focused.
“We need to take the best of that learning and make sure it is part of the template for the future of construction.”
