TTA is pleased to announce the election of its Chief Executive Officer, Kay Porter, to the Board of Build UK.
Build UK is the leading representative organisation within the construction industry, numbering clients, contractors and specialist trade associations amongst its membership. Its aim is to provide a single voice for the construction supply chain and it is the first point of contact for Government departments, such as BEIS, the Cabinet Office and DLUHC, and works closely with bodies such as the Construction Leadership Council and CBI. Build UK has played a leading role throughout the pandemic and the challenges of Brexit by providing information for its members, partly via its weekly updates, and by consistently lobbying Government departments to ensure that the voice of construction is heard loud and clear.
For TTA to have achieved such a position, holding one of the eight board positions, reflects the hard work that the Association has been carrying out on behalf of its members over many years, but in particular during the challenges of the past two years.
“We recognise the support that TTA continues to provide to us in our work representing the construction industry,” says Suzannah Nichol MBE, Build UK’s Chief Executive, “so I am very pleased to welcome Kay and TTA to our Board.”
“For TTA to gain this position on the Build UK Board gives us the ability to contribute to the vital work of the Board and the team at Build UK even more strongly than in the past,” says Kay Porter. “I am very grateful for the support my nomination received from Build UK Specialist Trade Association members. I would also like to thank the outgoing Directors for their amazing work during a very challenging term and I very much look forward to working as a member of the new board going forward.”
“Gaining senior level representation on the Build UK Board is great news for TTA,” says Chairman Paul Luff. “I firmly believe this achievement is recognition for the much increased profile of TTA over the past 18 months, as Kay has attended and participated in Build UK meetings and as we have strengthened our relationships with key bodies, including Build UK, CLC, CPA and BEIS. I would hope that our closer relationship to Government and the wider construction industry, which our seat on the Board of Build UK brings us, will mean that we are even better able to represent the views and business interests of our members, whatever challenges the future brings. This is great news for all TTA members!”
