CITB Chief Executive Appointed

CITB has announced their new CEO to take over from Sarah Beale on 1st September, with Tim Balcon being appointed to the role. Tim will have a month handover with Sarah before she moves to her new role at the end of September.

Tim Balcon has led professional and membership bodies, including being Chief Executive of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment and Chief Executive of the Energy and Utility Sector Skills Council, where he created the National Skills Academy for Power.

Commenting, Richard Beresford, NFB chief executive said:

“Tim joins at a pivotal time for CITB as Consensus draws to a close and enters a new and uncertain period. The organisation must demonstrate value for all construction employers, especially for the SME’s across England, Scotland and Wales, and become an organisation fit for the future. Our members want to see CITB running efficiently, effectively and most importantly with accountability. It’s time for CITB to step up under Tim’s leadership and we look forward to working with him to deliver that”.
