The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) announced today that Andy Brown will take over as its Interim CEO.
Andy has been in engineering since 1982 when he joined the Royal Air Force as an aircraft technician. During his career Andy developed technical training and competence schemes before leading an engineering training school. He joined the ECITB in 2006 and became Director of Operations in 2013.
Chris Claydon MBE announced his departure as ECITB’s CEO in November after seven years at the helm of the industry-led statutory skills body.
Chris said: “I am delighted to be handing on the baton to Andy, with whom I have worked for many years. With his strong industry background, he will be a safe pair of hands for the ECITB while the Board recruits a permanent CEO.”
Andy’s focus will be delivering the ECITB Strategy 2023-2025 that was developed in partnership with industry, training providers and the UK, Scottish and Welsh governments, and launched last September.
