ISG has appointed Zoe Price as chief executive, following the departure of Matt Blowers after two years in the role.
She is the first woman to hold the top job in the business.
Price was previously ISG’s group chief operating officer. Her 12-year career at the company includes roles as group director for public sector frameworks and COO for UK construction.
ISG has also appointed Andrew Page as interim chief financial officer, with current CFO Karen Booth leaving the business at the end of March.
Commenting on her appointment, Price said: “I’d like to pay tribute to the contribution that both Matt and Karen have made to the ISG business. We have not been immune to the challenging landscape of the construction industry over the past few years, but our focus on collaboration and quality delivery, alongside our investment in our people, have characterised this period.
“I’m determined to build on this legacy, but also seek to more fundamentally reset how our business, and the wider industry, responds to the growing challenges to our sector. That is going to take different thinking. We cannot expect to attract the talent and creativity our sector needs to thrive, through the continuation of behaviours and approaches that deliver the status quo.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of helping to make a change that will be positive across construction.”
