Specialist contractors have recognised 14 industry leaders for their outstanding contribution to improving payment practices in construction.

The Fair Payment Champions are drawn from across the industry and include Minister for the Cabinet Office Francis Maude MP, who is determining fair payment policy at the highest level within Government, and high profile clients such as Andrew Wolstenholme from Crossrail and Stephen Blakey from Network Rail.

Several specialist contractors, who are members of the National Specialist Contractors Council championing the industry Fair Payment Campaign are also recognised for successfully implementing fair payment within their businesses.

Fair payment champions

  • Nick Baster – FORM – (AIS Member)
  • Tony Bingham – Barrister
  • Stephen Blakey – Network Rail
  • Sir Michael Latham – Patron of NFRC
  • Francis Maude MP – Minster for the Cabinet Office, Paymaster General
  • Scott McKenna – McKenna Flooring – (CFA Member)
  • Steve Medhurst – W B Simpsons & Sons – (TTA Member)
  • Justin Perry – Perry Vale Associates
  • Martyn Reed – Tractel (UK) – (SAEMA Member)
  • John Riches – Henry Cooper Consultants
  • Peter Rogers – Stanhope
  • Simon Roxburgh – Boyd & Co (Metalworkers) – (ADCAS Member)
  • Andy Walker – ASDA Distribution
  • Andrew Wolstenholme – Crossrail

Since the launch of the campaign five years ago, there has been significant progress in improving payment practices, particularly in the public sector where six out of 10 specialists are securing retention-free contracts and 44% are paid within 30 days.

The Government is continuing its drive for prompt payment and Business and Enterprise Minister Michael Fallon MP recently delivered a warning to big businesses that they will be publicly named for failing to sign up to the Prompt Payment Code.

NSCC President Kevin Louch said: “The achievements of the Fair Payment Campaign to date would not have been possible without the commitment of individuals like our Fair Payment Champions to making a difference.”
