CSIC was launched in 2014 and helps Scotland’s construction related businesses to innovate, collaborate and grow by matching innovation requirements with business support and academic specialists.
Ms Bush’s appointment comes as the innovation centre expands its range of services and activities throughout Scotland and internationally. This will include creating partnerships with public sector clients and developing the skills and training opportunities needed to build the workforce of the future.
Her role will be to lead, develop and implement a range of public sector stakeholder and future workforce partnerships using the full range of CSIC resources to achieve its aim of transforming the construction industry and safeguarding it for the future.
She was promoted to the role after working at CSIC as a business relationship manager since early 2017, where she led on a range of programmes in collaboration with businesses, public sector organisations and universities to drive innovation in Scotland’s construction sector.
She has more than 20 years’ experience in a range of public and private sector built environment and construction roles across the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
With a background in sustainable building, low carbon and energy efficiency, as well as housing sector experience, Rohan has managed innovation funds for the Victorian State Government (Australia) and also helped set up the highly successful New Zealand Green Building Council, which provides sustainability services and products to over 300 member organisations.
