Roz commented: "Since joining akp five years ago I've thrown myself into all opportunities to develop our client base and engage those involved in the projects we deliver.

With 30 years of trading history to date, the akp name is a strong one and so I've enjoyed enhancing how that brand is now seen across multiple media platforms, to make it accessible for the next generation of Design Teams and clientele.

"I am delighted to be taking up my new position on the board and look forward to playing a broader role in the ongoing success of the business. My main focus will remain to develop relationships and drive client engagement, but in an effort to further enhance akp's supply chain relationships I will be embarking on a programme of supply chain development working closely with akp's estimating and operations teams to streamline the firm's procurement activities and roll out a more cohesive process moving forward."
