Greig MacLeod added: “The Scottish Building Federation is a fantastic organisation that serves the interests of the sector across Scotland and I am delighted to have been chosen as the new President.
“There critical areas where the building sector has a key role to play, be that tackling climate change, providing apprenticeships making sure we build enough homes for people to live in and helping the economy recover after Covid-19. I will be actively engaging with members immediately to see how we can best support them and deliver a sector we are all proud of.”
