Business Development Director, UK Construction South
Louise Tanner is business development director for ISG’s UK Construction South business and a management board member.
Louise joined ISG’s northern UK construction business in 2008 as a business development manager focusing on small works. Following a promotion to senior business development manager, she took responsibility for all business development activities within the region with an additional role as chair of the national health sector forum. During this time, Louise played an integral role in securing ISG's place on the successful North West Construction Hub Medium Value Framework. ISG soon became the most prolific work-winning contractor on the framework and Louise took on the position of chair of the framework's work-winning special-interest group.
In 2012, seeking a new challenge, Louise relocated to London where she now holds the role of business development director for UK Construction South. As a regional board member, her role covers a wider remit than her core business development activities. To support this, she is excited to be undertaking a CIOB graduate conversion course to supplement her BA (Hons) in Business and Marketing with construction-specific skills. Louise believes that one of her key achievements was being able to adapt and integrate successfully into a new market and attributes this to an inherent passion and interest in customer relationships.
