Shine Communications founder Rachel Bell has been appointed chair of Built Environment Communications Group

Shine Communications founder Rachel Bell has been appointed chair of BECG (Built Environment Communications Group), the agency created last year with Remarkable Group’s integration of HardHat.

BECG – which recently rebranded from Remarkable Group – said Bell’s appointment was part of its pledge to support gender parity across the built environment sectors.

BECG CEO Stephen Pomeroy said: “Rachel has an impressive reputation as a leader – not only for her shrewd business sense, but also for her inspiring focus on the culture of a successful, growing organisation, and the role its people play as a key asset in this. We are delighted to have Rachel join us; her energy, enthusiasm and acumen are a winning combination.”
