Ifan Glyn has been appointed as the new Director of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) Cymru. Ifan has been with FMB Cymru for three years and was previously their Public Affairs Executive. Ifan succeeds Richard Jenkins who was with the organisation for seven years.

“I am delighted to take on this new role within FMB Cymru, and would like to thank and wish my predecessor Richard Jenkins all the very best for the future. I joined the FMB when construction firms were experiencing particularly tough times, and I’ve seen how an organisation such as the FMB can provide credibility and support to enable companies to survive as well as grow.

“I take on the role of Director with an eye on the Welsh Assembly elections which will take place in 2016. I will therefore be looking to engage with FMB members to find out what their concerns and aspirations are, and what government at all levels need to do to ensure that the Welsh construction industry thrives.”
