The Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) has announced that its national director Rosemary Beales is to step down in March.
Beales will leave CECA after nearly a decade and a half in the post, having helped establish the organisation in 1996 after the dissolution of the Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors.
“After significant thought over some period of time I have decided to leave CECA at the end of March,” Beales said. “I remain extremely proud of my role at CECA and everything we have achieved. I believe CECA is an active, positive and influential part of public life in the UK and will continue to provide leadership to the construction industry.
“After nearly a decade and a half in post it would be impossible not to have grown strongly attached to the organisation and the many people I have had the privilege of working with throughout that time, both staff, members and the many others who make up our industry and its clients. I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support I received during my time as national director and to formally wish you the very best for the future,” she added.
“Rosemary Beales has been a fundamental part of our association since it was founded,” said CECA board chairman Seamus Keogh. “She steered CECA through many challenges and has provided leadership not just within CECA but in the wider industry.”
