New Chief Executive for Scheme

January 2009

David Hardy, the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Chief Executive since 2003, is stepping down at the end of 2008, with the role of Chief Executive passing to the current General Manager, Edward Hardy.

David has been largely responsible for developing the Scheme over the past 11 years into the successful and respected organisation it has become. With over 35,000 sites signing up to the Scheme since it began, David has seen site registrations grow from 18 to more than 600 per month and the number of Monitors expand from 4 to over 100. During his time as Chief Executive, David has also overseen numerous major Scheme initiatives, such as Associate Membership, Client Partnership, the development of the Ivor Goodsite character, and the introduction of training Seminars and Workshops.

David commented: This has been a hugely satisfying time for me and it has been a privilege to have been associated with this Scheme.

Edward Hardy has also been fully involved with the development of the Scheme over the last eleven years, in a number of roles, but over the past six years as General Manager and Director.

Scheme Chairman, Norman Reed, commented: I would like to thank David Hardy for his immense and invaluable contribution to the growth and development of the Scheme and I am pleased that his experience and influence will still be available to us as he maintains a working role within the Scheme. I am delighted that Edward will be stepping up into the role of Chief Executive and wish him every success.
