Collida has appointed Raynee De Zoysa as its strategic growth manager to drive forward the company’s ambitious plans in the built environment sector.
Raynee brings more than a decade of construction industry experience in operations and strategy, having joined from Galliford Try where she was a framework manager. With a focus on promoting Collida’s fresh approach to sustainable construction to a wider audience, Raynee will be building new partnerships and sourcing opportunities to further establish the company’s market presence.
Collida – a technology-focused business that is revolutionising how the UK construction industry designs, procures, delivers, and maintains buildings – is rapidly expanding its credentials as a trusted specialist. By using digital platforms, Collida aims to rethink approaches, optimise the project journey and unlock end-user value, providing progressive and innovative solutions to both current and future industry challenges.
Raynee said: “I was drawn to Collida as it’s changing the way the entire sector thinks about construction, by challenging existing conventions. Collida utilises industry-leading technologies and its project lifecycle approach, to offer a better way of working that places sustainability at the heart of everything it does – which really aligns with my values. I’ve got a fantastic opportunity to work alongside a multi-disciplinary and diverse team to fast-forward the company’s impressive built environment ambitions, and I look forward to getting started.”
Having started her career on the ground as a graduate site engineer, where she worked on the London Olympic White Water Rafting Canoeing Centre, Raynee has since taken on roles in delivery, pre-construction, residential and education projects, where she has amassed an extensive skillset.
Tim Carey, chief product director at Collida, said: “Collida’s holistic approach integrates and optimises modern construction methods and technologies to unlock value for a broad cross-section of customers. Raynee will play a key role, responsible for keeping pace with our evolving product and service offering – whilst educating organisations, expanding our reach, and raising industry standards. We are very pleased to welcome Raynee to our growing team and to drawing on her expertise to help deliver our commitment to change our industry.”
