Brick Development Association announces appointment of new Chief Executive

Andrew Eagles will be joining the Brick Development Association as its new Chief Executive at the beginning of June.

Andrew is currently Managing Director of Sustainable Homes, the consultancy and research body providing advice and assistance to the housing sector. He has previously worked in a number of roles with the Housing Corporation and was consultant on strategic housing policy to the London Borough of Bromley.

Commenting on his appointment Andrew said:

“As the sector looks to dramatically increase housing numbers it is essential that quality is maintained.”

“The Brick Development Association plays a vital role in providing advice, strategic insight and case studies of exemplar buildings.  I am excited to be joining the Association at this vital time.”

Michael Ankers, Chairman of the Brick Development Association said:

“We are delighted to have found someone with the background and experience of Andrew to lead the Association at this important time. The brick industry has recovered strongly from the recession and bricks are back in demand. The industry has a critical role to play in ensuring the ambitious targets for new housing that the government has set are achieved, and in other parts of construction, architects are increasingly turning to brick as a material that will deliver sustainable building solutions.”
