    arrow Back to news 7th October 2016

    The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has confirmed the appointment of its new chief executive, Alan Vallance, following an extensive recruitment process.

    The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has confirmed the appointment of its new chief executive, Alan Vallance, following an extensive recruitment process.

     

    Mr Vallance, who joined RIBA in September 2015 as Interim Director of Finance and Operations and has been Interim Chief Executive since February 2016, spent three years previously as Chief Operating Officer at the Law Society, the membership and regulatory body for solicitors across England and Wales.

    “Architects are creative, visionary and collaborative professionals who ensure that our built environment serves and strengthens communities now and in the future,” said Vallance.

    “It is a privilege to have been appointed to the role of Chief Executive of the RIBA. I look forward to working with the Board and Council, the staff team and members in the UK and globally to deliver the RIBA’s five-year strategic plan and to further strengthen the RIBA’s offer to current and future members.”

     

    Jane Duncan, president, RIBA, believes Vallance is the perfect candidate to “lead the RIBA” through its next five-year strategy.

    “I am delighted that Alan Vallance has been appointed as Chief Executive of the RIBA. We had a large and strong field of applicants and the interview panel were unanimous in concluding that Alan is the right person to lead the RIBA as we deliver our five-year strategy,” said Duncan.

    “As Interim Chief Executive since February this year, Alan has demonstrated his energy, drive and commitment to strengthening the RIBA’s voice and impact as a global professional membership body driving excellence in architecture.”

     

    At Sunsquare, we welcome the appointment of Mr Vallance – a man that shares the same passion for the built environment as we do. Every day, we strive for architectural excellence with our BSI Kitemarked rooflights and we look forward to seeing Mr Vallance strengthen the RIBA’s voice and impact as a global professional architecture body.
