BSRIA’s next chief executive — Julia Evans.

Julia Evans is to become chief executive of BSRIA in May 2014 when Andrew Eastwell retires from the company. She is currently chief executive of the National Federation of Builders, a position she has held since January 2006. The federation campaigns on issues that impact the construction industry, such as procurement, utilities, sustainability and funding. As such, she represents the industry at high-level Government and industry forums and is an active media commentator and policy influencer.

BSRIA’s chairman Leslie Smith, who is managing director of Cudd Bentley Consulting, said, ‘After a highly competitive selection process, I am confident that we have in Julia a very effective voice for BSRIA and its members, as well as an accomplished executive.’

Julia Evans said, ‘This industry is a fascinating one, with many levels and skills and operators. I have been proud to have spent several years representing the contractors and buildings involved in the built environment. In my new role I will represent another crucial side of the sector — that of the environment, technical and sustainable agenda. I am looking forward to joining BSRIA and taking this important work forward.

‘I believe the industry is finally, after some years in the wilderness, resuming normal service — albeit slowly. Working with Government, not against it, has been my philosophy, and I intend to continue the relationship in that vein for future positive developments.’
