Board Chair Announcement: Interim Chief Executive Appointed 

22 February 2024

I am delighted to announce that the Board has approved Ankit Sharma, our current Chief Operating Officer, to be the Registered Master Builders Acting Chief Executive.  

This will take effect from 1st March until the new permanent Chief Executive starts. Ankit’s strong leadership skills and knowledge of the organisation will ensure stability and that we continue to move forward as an organisation over this transition period.

I am looking forward to working with Ankit in this new capacity.

CEO recruitment update

The executive recruitment agency has been working with the Board on the recruitment of the new Chief Executive.

Applications closed this month, and we have worked through the many applications for the role and settled on a long list of preferred applicants who are from a range of industries and backgrounds. From here, a first round of interviews will be held, and a short list agreed for formal Board interviews.  

We are hoping to make the exciting announcement of the new Chief Executive by the end of March if possible.
