CIOB announces new vice president

Mark Beard FCIOB, chairman of construction group Beard, will be appointed vice president of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) on June 19.

In 2020 Mark will become the 117th President of the CIOB. His Presidency will follow from Charles Egbu, Dean of School of the Built Environment and Architecture at London Southbank University who will become CIOB President in 2019, and Chris Soffe CEO of Gleeds America who will become CIOB President in July 2018.

Speaking about his appointment Mark said: “I am delighted to accept the opportunity of following Chris and Charles as vice president and president of the Chartered Institute of Building at a time of great challenge and change for our industry. I look forward to building on the outstanding work of CIOB past presidents; in particular, turning the excellent research carried out by CIOB Quality Commission into meaningful actions which improve the quality of the buildings we construct.”

Mark has led Beard since 1999, transforming the 126-year-old family-owned firm from an £18 million to £144 million turnover construction business operating across the South of England. He attributes Beard’s strong year-on-year growth to an “encouraging and supportive company culture, the prompt and faultless delivery of its projects, and a commitment to continuous business improvement.”

A fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building and a Chartered Environmentalist, Mark is a Governor of Christ Church Cathedral School, Oxford, and a Patron of Alexander Devine Hospice in Maidenhead. He also sits on the Ashmolean Museum Corporate Advisory Board, Henley Business School Advisory Board and the EEF National Economic Committee.
