Keltbray’s CEO, Brendan Kerr, has been officially appointed as Build UK’s Chairman of the Board.

His appointment, which was announced at the organisation’s AGM on 18 September, is his 2nd role on the Board, having previously held the title of Vice-Chairman.

Build UK is the leading representative organisation for the UK construction industry. It brings together Clients, Main Contractors, Trade Associations representing over 11,500 Specialist Contractors and other organisations committed to industry collaboration and represents in excess of 40% of UK construction.

Its aims are to enable the construction supply chain to improve the efficiency and delivery of construction projects for the benefit of the UK economy, and ensure a joined up approach and single voice for construction to industry stakeholders.

As Chairman, a position that he will hold for two years alongside his role as CEO of Keltbray, Brendan’s priority is to drive greater confidence in the industry. This will be done by building the confidence and capability of all those who work in it and creating a strong and healthy workforce in body, mind and skills.
