Anne King, Marketing and Memebership Director of BSRIA, has been awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours in recognition of her services to the construction industry.
Anne has worked at BSRIA for 30 years, bringing her economist’s skills to the market intelligence group. After fifteen years of market research on a consultancy basis, she moved on to the marketing of BSRIA’s own activities and is now Marketing and Membership Director. She has also been a leading member of the best practice programmes and is currently on the delivery team for the Knowledge Transfer Network for the Modern Built Environment working in issues around process improvement both of the construction process and the management and operation of buildings.
Anne says she is very proud to have received the award, but feels that it should really have been given to all her colleagues at BSRIA as well. “Without their input nothing would have happened. We could not have set up our market intelligence business, kept our member services and publications relevant to the industry or promoted best practice so widely.”
In congratulating Anne on the award, BSRIA Chief Executive Andrew Eastwell said how pleased he was for BSRIA: “It is good to see that that non engineering skills and dedication are rewarded in construction, and is good to see a woman getting the award.”
