Construction Leadership Council names Tideway's Mitchell as co-chair

Tideway chief executive Andy Mitchell has been appointed to replace Andrew Wolstenholme as co-chair of the Construction Leadership Council (CLC).

Mitchell joined Tideway full time in early summer 2014. He was previously programme director and a board member at Crossrail and has a wealth of experience both from projects in the United Kingdom and overseas.

After 12 years working in the United Arab Emirates, France and South Africa, as well as on major developments such as Hong Kong Airport and the Hong Kong West Rail, he joined Network Rail in 2001. He was project director for Network Rail’s Southern Power Upgrade project, and was also the major programme director of the Thameslink Programme.

Mitchell is a fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, former Chair of the Infrastructure Industry Innovation Platform (i3P), and after four years has recently stepped down as chairman of the Infrastructure Client Group (ICG).

He has been awarded the CBE for his services to Civil Engineering.

"I was honoured to be approached for the role as CLC co-chair at what is an exciting and challenging time for both the council and the sector as a whole," he said. "Securing a sector deal was a huge achievement, and I look forward to building on the strong foundations laid by Andrew and the team as we move into implementation."

The CLC also thanked Wolstenholme for his three years of service as co-chair, which culminated in the publication of the landmark Construction sector deal earlier this year, and added: "We wish him all the best in his new role at BAE Systems."

Mitchell will formally take over as co-chair following the CLC Conference on 24 October, and will chair his first meeting of the CLC in early November.
