BSRIA has appointed Lisa Ashworth as its new chief executive, tasked with furthering the organisation’s continued ambitions for growth.

Ashworth joins the organisation with a wealth of experience in leading technology-based data and information businesses.

Over the course of her career, Ashworth has served at organisations such as the Financial Times, PR Newswire, Frost and Sullivan, and Reevoo/Feefo. She brings a successful track record of growing businesses across diverse sectors.

In addition to her extensive operational experience, she has a strong background in setting up and expanding businesses internationally.

Chris Harty, chairman of BSRIA, said: “Lisa brings a wealth of experience and new energy. Not only has she spent her career in the data, information, and research arena, her strong track record includes scaling commercial operations internationally. Her experience makes her an ideal leader for BSRIA as it embarks on its next phase of development.

“Her leadership style is open, collaborative, and people-centric and aligns seamlessly with BSRIA’s organisational ethos. Committed to fostering a cohesive and dynamic work environment, I am confident she is the perfect person to take BSRIA into its exciting new chapter.”

Ashworth added: “I’m excited to join a business that is already so pivotal to the industry it supports, but equally well positioned to grow further in the knowledge, data, and information market.

“Data is a vital raw material for the sustainability agenda of the construction sector and will play a crucial role in closing the performance gap and creating better buildings.

“As the built environment gears toward a greener future, our resources will be foundational for helping organisations achieve their digitisation and decarbonisation goals, creating a practical pathway to Net Zero and beyond.

“As BSRIA looks ahead to further innovation and expansion, I’m looking forward to working alongside our customer-focused, vibrant teams to advance our research ambitions and drive commercial growth.”

The research and information membership body for the built environment, headquartered in Bracknell, Berkshire, celebrates its 70th anniversary next year.

Ashworth takes up her position on the 1 June 2024, following an induction period.
