CIC appoints Justin Sullivan as its new Chair

Posted: 9th June 2021

CIC has today inaugurated Justin Sullivan as its new Chair at its Council Meeting. Justin succeeds Stephen Hodder MBE in this role for a two year term of office starting with immediate effect. Stephen now becomes Deputy Chairman for a year, in accordance with CIC’s rules and byelaws.

Justin is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry and founded his company Adair in 1994. Justin is a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Chair of the International Construction Measurement Standards Coalition (ICMS) and a Fellow of the Expert Witness Institute.

On taking up his new role, Justin said: “It is a great honour and privilege to be appointed as Chair of the Construction Industry Council. My priority will be to continue to build on our solid foundation and lead the organisation especially during these challenging times. It is vital we have an organisation that is relevant for our Members’ and Professionals within the Built Environment..

I have a clear vision of where I want CIC to be, delivering the ongoing changes we need to stay relevant and successful, and which capture the desires and needs of the market and the professions. What has become apparent over the last year is the need to work together, to facilitate collaboration and work with our members and others, utilising expertise to shape a built environment that delivers a better society and a better world. I look forward to taking CIC from strength to strength and delivering on behalf of our members and colleagues. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Stephen Hodder for helping to steer this organisation through very testing times and who will now continue as Deputy Chairman for the next year.”

CIC’s Outgoing Chairman Stephen Hodder said “It has been a real honour to chair the Construction Industry Council and witness the industry and collaboration between member institutions, particularly during the pandemic. I would like to thank the Board, Graham and staff for all their support and hard work in delivering the agenda I set out two years ago despite the challenging conditions. I welcome Justin into his role as CIC Chair and look forward to continuing to work with him for the next year in my capacity as Deputy Chair. I have had the pleasure of working with Justin, albeit virtually, over the past year notably on the steering group for CIC’s current Strategic Review which has also been launched today. I trust that Justin will help drive the recommendations of the review forward and excel within his new role”.
