FORMER Navy officer Isabel Martinson has taken on the new role of executive chairman of the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).
Isabel, who is also an ex-Trade Association Forum chairman, has been appointed to take the Scheme ‘to the next level’.
The organisation aims to make registration “essential” for every construction firm to boost performance levels and improve the sector’s image.
Isabel was one of the first female Naval Supplier Officers to serve at sea, reaching the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
She has also been chief executive of The Giftware Association and head of marketing, communications and export services at The Sports Industries Federation.
CCS non-executive chairman Mike Petter said, “The Scheme has grown exponentially since its first registration back in 1997, celebrating its 90,000th site registration earlier this year. We welcome Isabel’s appointment and we are very much looking forward to Isabel’s wealth of senior management experience and strategic insight in helping to develop the Scheme and achieve even more success in improving the image of construction in the future”.
Isabel Martinson added, “I feel honoured and delighted to be joining the Considerate Constructors Scheme. I am new to the construction industry however, I have been aware of the Scheme as a member of the general public for a number of years, so it has clearly raised awareness of the sector’s commitment to improve the image of construction.
“There are now significant opportunities to take the Scheme further. I am very much looking forward to meeting as many people as possible in the industry, to develop the visions of all involved in this crucial contributor to the UK economy.”
Mike Petter will hand over as Chairman, while remaining a director of the Scheme and overseeing managerial and operational aspects.
