RIBA Chief Executive to sit on ‘best of British’ creativity board
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Chief Executive, Alan Vallance, will sit on the Creative Industries Trade & Investment Board to represent the profession, taking a leading role in supporting the expansion of UK architecture’s services overseas. News of the board was announced today by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Chief Executive, Alan Vallance says, “UK Architecture is a global success story which contributes £4.8 billion to our economy. To grow the influence and reputation of the sector it is vital that we expand internationally and I am delighted to join the new Creative Industries Trade and Investment Board to support this. 1 in 5 architects want to work internationally but they need more financial support and market information in order to so.
I look forward to working with Annette King, Chair of the Board, and my colleagues in the creative industries to ensure that architects have the support they need to successfully grow overseas.”
