New NASC Contracts Committee Chair Confirmed
Matthew Cousins, Director at Apex Scaffolding (Exeter) Ltd, has been appointed Chair of the NASC Contracts Committee.
Mr Cousins succeeds David Brown, Commercial Director of IBN Scaffold Access Ltd, who has stepped down from the role to take up the position of NASC Vice President.
While both NASC standing committee members have seen their NASC responsibilities increased, they will continue to serve the confederation by sitting on external committees.
Mr Cousins will remain as the NASC’s representative on the Contractors Legal Group (CLG) while Mr Brown will keep his position on the Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) council.
Robin James, NASC Managing Director, said: “I’d like to thank David Brown for his service on the Contracts Committee, which he has chaired since 2016 and been an active member of since 2012.
“During his time as chair he has overseen a major overhaul of existing contractual guidance titles and the creation of new titles as well.
“We are sure that while Matthew Cousins has large shoes to fill, he is more than equipped to tackle this role and continue the excellent work of the Contracts Committee.”
