John Perkins Construction’s Contracts Director, Rupert Perkins, has been appointed as a member of the CITB Investment Funding Committee.
CITB is the Industry Training Board for the construction industry, and the Investment Funding Committee plays a vital role in shaping the future direction of the organisation’s funding strategy.
Other members of the Investment Funding Committee include directors of Redrow plc, BSRIA, and BAM Construct. The Committee is charged with ensuring CITB’s Investment Fund arrangements remain sustainable and affordable through a period of exciting change for both CITB and the wider industry.
Rupert brings to the Committee a breadth of experience, gleaned from working at board level in a range of professional organisations, including the National Federation of Builders (NFB), Considerate Constructors Scheme, Building Safety Group, and South West Builders Federation. Notably, he built up strong financial management experience during a two-year stint as Finance Chair for the NFB (2012-2014).
Rupert Perkins comments: “I’m very pleased to get involved with such a prestigious committee, and to have another opportunity to contribute to the industry that I love. This is a chance to comment upon and influence grant funding during a critical time. And I relish the prospect of being a voice for the SME sector, whose views are often underrepresented.”
