Christophe Sykes is Director General of Construction Products Europe and has been working for Brussels-based European non-profit associations for over a decade.
He started his EU career with the raw material industry and was then invited to re-launch a construction product association. Having successfully expanded this organisation and its corresponding network, Christophe was invited in 2012 to bring Construction Products Europe, then known as CEPMC, to a position of European public affairs eminence.
As the Director General of Construction Products Europe, Christophe’s main task is to identify, report and help define industry positions vis-à-vis EU legislative initiatives that may impact the EU construction industry. He accomplishes this though the development and execution of public affairs strategies, network development and coalition-building, and team management of the secretariat.
