Bobby Chakravarthy becomes new President of APS

05/10/2016 - 03:41PM

The Association for Project Safety (APS) is delighted to announce that Bobby Chakravarthy has taken up his role as its new President.  

Bobby was made President Elect in 2014 and takes over from Richard Wilks whose tenure has come to an end.  Bobby joined APS in 2007 and served as two Regional Chairs before becoming a Director of APS in 2013.  

Bobby said:

 “I am taking over as President of APS after two years when The Association has successfully overcome tough challenges to our role with design construction health and safety, posed by changes in the regulatory framework.  Thanks to Richard Wilks, who has done an extraordinary job of steering APS during this time, we are supporting our Members to bring the highest possible standards of skills, knowledge and experience to the projects they work on.   

“This will continue to be at the centre of what we do.   However APS has an important role to play in pushing for improvements in health and safety, and exploring and developing innovative ways to do this.  We need to work hand in hand with government, the HSE, our partner organisations in the sector and above all, our Members, to see the industry raise its game so that construction sites are as safe and health-promoting as possible for the people who work on them.”

Outgoing President, Richard Wilks said:

“I am delighted to hand over to the role of President to Bobby.  At the end of my time as President, more people have come to realise the importance of design and construction, health and safety risk management.    Bobby is passionately committed to keeping people safe on site and will drive APS to maintain this momentum and work for a culture of continuous improvement for everyone working within construction.”

Bobby Chakravarthy is a Designer, Partner and Head of Architecture at Arcus Consulting, a multidisciplinary design and construction services practice with six offices throughout the UK.
