RIBA Gloucestershire Appoints Chris Ryder as Chair Elect

We are proud to share the news of Chris Ryder’s appointment as the new RIBA Gloucestershire’s Chair Elect.

Chris started his term as Chair Elect on 1st September 2020, with the position being held until August 2021, leading to Chris taking over as RIBA Gloucestershire Chair from September 2021 to August 2023.

Speaking of his recent appointment, Chris said, “It is a privilege to represent RIBA Gloucestershire and I am excited at what the next two years will bring. In these unprecedented times, I intend on promoting Gloucestershire as a county that is open for business, and to work with partners to bring investment and opportunity. Hard times are likely to be looming; now is the time to pull together as a collective, to protect the future of the profession within Gloucestershire.”

As part of his new role, Chris will be responsible for supporting the current Chair in delivering activity and influence in the region. Having recently overseen our Gloucester Studio relocating to a larger office, Chris is keen to continue increasing the Practice’s presence in the region as he works alongside local stakeholders to support the members of RIBA Gloucestershire.
