RLB partner Andrew Fettes-Brown has been appointed to the firm’s global board. He leads RLB’s data centres sector for Europe and will drive services across key areas including sustainability and digital transformation.    

Prior to working at RLB, Fettes-Brown held various directorships at Mace. 

“To ensure we are providing the best solutions to our clients, we need to understand, embrace and integrate change in both the market and technology,” said Fettes-Brown. “Leading this work with colleagues from across the global practice will play a critical role in aligning our global service offerings with evolving market demands and technological advancements.”  

Adding: “I am excited to be leading this important work with my global board colleagues to drive the change our clients and industry needs to answer the questions of a modern property and construction industry into the future.”     

Director and RLB UK’s head of services, Russell Lloyd, stepped down from the board on 31 December 2023. Lloyd, who has been part of RLB for more than 30 years, will continue to work on key projects but will let go part of his senior management responsibilities.   

Andrew Reynolds, global chairman and chief executive of RLB UK and Europe, said: “First, I want to recognise the extraordinary insight, work and commitment Russell has given to RLB’s global team over the time he has served as a global board director. His experience and expertise within the built environment and strategic ability to align services on a global platform have been invaluable to the business. Thank you, Russell.   

“Second, I’d like to extend a welcome from all my global board colleagues to Andrew Fettes-Brown whose capability I know well in his work across the UK and Europe. Andrew will bring a fresh perspective and strong leadership to support the next stage of RLB’s global strategic service journey.”
