The Master Builders Association of Victoria (Master Builders) has a new Chief Executive Officer, who will join the association in early 2019.
Rebecca Casson, currently Chief Executive Officer of the Committee for Geelong, is the new CEO and replaces Radley de Silva, who is retiring after five years in the role and 17 years with Master Builders.
Ms Casson was appointed from an extensive list of well-qualified candidates.
Ms Melanie Fasham, President of the Master Builders, said that Ms Casson’s extensive history of advocacy and outstanding organisational skills makes her an exceptional appointment.
“Construction is critical to the state’s economy, being the largest full-time employer in Victoria, supporting more than 280,000 jobs,” Ms Fasham said.
“This appointment will result in the Master Builders continuing to expand our leadership role representing the interests of the industry and the people who work in it, as well as further contributing to the industry through our extensive training program.
“The board would like to pay tribute to Radley de Silva for his outstanding and dedicated service to the Master Builders.”
