Rosemary Beales to step down in March after nearly 15 years at the helm

The national director of the Civil Engineering Contractors Association, Rosemary Beales, is to leave her post in three months time.

She will step down in March 2011 from the top of the organisation, which represents over 300 contractors.

She 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 United Kingdom and will continue to provide leadership to the construction industry.

Chief executive of the Construction Products Association, Michael Ankers, said: “CECA has played a key role in the development of a strong and united voice for the infrastructure sector. Rosemary has personally played a major part in this and her knowledge and guidance will be missed by the industry.”
