Commercial sector association appoints new MD

Commercial Interiors UK (CIUK), the trade association for the UK’s commercial interiors sector, has appointed Sean Holt (ex-BFM) as its new MD.

Sean will be responsible for leading a dedicated team to deliver the revised strategy of CIUK following its recent rebranding from BCFA, improving member engagement and benefits, increasing membership and growing the CIUK events portfolio while working with its media partner Design Insider to build its online portal dedicated to commercial interior designers and architects.

Sean's career to date has included organising and delivering major national and international events, conferences and exhibitions, and most recently served as MD of the British Furniture Manufacturers' association (BFM).

The new appointment comes after CIUK’s previous MD, Jeremy Stein, announced he was stepping down from the role earlier this year.

Sean says: “It is a privilege to be joining such a forward-thinking, ambitious organisation, that is committed to delivering a range of contemporary benefits and services that meet the needs of its members. I am looking forward to enhancing what is already an impressive portfolio of events, welcoming new members and partners, listening and responding to existing members needs and supporting the evolution of our media partner Design insider.”

Carolyn Mitchell, chair, says: “The CIUK board are thrilled to welcome Sean to Commercial Interiors UK. With a proven track record of excellence and expertise in leading trade organisations, Sean brings a fresh commercial perspective, that will steer the association towards growth and success. As we continue an exciting new chapter for the organisation, we are confident that under Sean's guidance, Commercial Interiors UK will thrive ensuring our memberships strategic objectives are met, we look forward to working with him over the coming years.”
