- Ann Bentley, RLB UK Board Member and RLB Global Board Director, is to step down from both roles when she retires from the firm at the end of October.
In 2021/22, RLB recorded turnover growth of 10% year-on-year across its global practice and in July, this year, Andrew Reynolds was appointed Global Chairman.
Commenting on the board changes, Andrew Reynolds, Global Chairman and Chief Executive of UK and Europe said: “I would like to welcome Mark Weaver to the Global Board of RLB. Joining RLB in 1998, Mark has over 34 years of international commercial and technical expertise and has been instrumental in supporting RLB UK’s growth towards our 2030 targets and is an invaluable addition to the Global Board.
I would also like to take this opportunity personally as well as on behalf of the Global Board, to thank Ann for being such an integral part of RLB for the last 33 years. From playing a leading role in many of our company milestones, including the UK management buyout and the formation of our global practice, to her pioneering work around Procuring for Value within her role on the UK Government’s Construction Leadership Council, Ann has been an inspiration to us all in her unstinting dedication to ensuring our industry remains future fit.”
