Mr Nash trained as an archaeologist before moving into the world of education and apprenticeships. For the past 12 years he has been working at the interface of education and business, supporting a number of membership-based organisations across different sectors. He has built up a career supporting such members to not only gain from being a member, but to also contribute to the growth of their respective industries.
June Davis, business manager, BSRIA North, said: “Richard brings with him an array of member-based experience and we see this appointment in a newly-created role as a crucial step in our continued development for the strategic direction BSRIA North is taking for 2018 and beyond.”
Mr Nash said: “I am excited at the opportunities that this role offers, especially in terms of enhancing BSRIA’s reputation across the north and encouraging more organisations to benefit from the opportunities afforded by being a member of BSRIA.
“During times of economic and political change and flux, having access to the latest information, market intelligence, technical expertise, resources and networking is crucial to business.
“As well as reaching out to and seeking out potential new members, I will be supporting existing members to link with appropriate BSRIA services to realise the significant return on investment to be achieved from membership.”
