Lisa Ashworth Appointed as Next BSRIA CEO
28 May 2024

From June 2024, Lisa Ashworth will become the CEO of the Building Services Research and Information Association.

She will replace Julia Evans who took over as BSRIA CEO from Andrew Eastwell in 2014.

Lisa has worked for organisations ranging from the Financial Times and PR Newswire to Frost and Sullivan, and Reevoo/Feefo, with a special interest in growing technology-based data and information businesses internationally. 

One of Lisa’s key ambitions is to improve the research and information membership body’s position in the knowledge, data, and information market. She commented: “Data is a vital raw material for the sustainability agenda of the construction sector and will play a crucial role in closing the performance gap and creating better buildings.  As the built environment gears toward a greener future, our resources will be foundational for helping organisations achieve their digitisation and decarbonisation goals, creating a practical pathway to net-zero and beyond.

“As Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) looks ahead to further innovation and expansion, I’m looking forward to working alongside our customer-focused, vibrant teams to advance our research ambitions and drive commercial growth.”

Chris Harty, Chair of BSRIA, added, “Lisa brings a wealth of experience and new energy. Not only has she spent her career in the data, information, and research arena, her strong track record includes scaling commercial operations internationally. Her experience makes her an ideal leader for BSRIA as it embarks on its next phase of development.

“Her leadership style is open, collaborative, and people-centric and aligns seamlessly with BSRIA’s organisational ethos. Committed to fostering a cohesive and dynamic work environment, I am confident she is the perfect person to take BSRIA into its exciting new chapter.”
