NFDC seeks new CEO

The National Federation of Demolition Contractors has announced that it is seeking a new chief executive officer for both the NFDC and for the National Demolition Training Group.

DemolitionNews understands that the new CEO will work alongside incumbent CEO Howard Button to ensure a smooth handover and succession.

According to an advertisement posted on both the NFDC website and on the LinkedIn social media platform, the new CEO will be “responsible for overall management of NFDC and NDTG. The role involves a high level of responsibility, requiring pivotal decision making and strategic thinking.”

The successful candidate will represent the Federation and demolition industry at events and on working groups, working closely with the boards and leadership teams of NFDC and NDTG to provide strong leadership to both organisations.

There is currently no indication of timescales or how long the NFDC expects Howard Button to work alongside the new appointee.

Button’s shoes will be difficult to fill. He has been the public face of the NFDC for around two decades, steering the Federation ship through the choppy waters of recession, ousted presidents and the ongoing investigation into bid rigging within the UK demolition industry that named 10 companies; all of them NFDC members at the time of the alleged offences.
