Industry Leader Cheryl Causebrook Joins GVE 


Industry leader, Cheryl Causebrook has joined the senior team at GVE, as the first associate director of GVE Commercial Solutions (Building) Ltd – the construction consultancy delivering contractual and commercial expertise to building contractors and subcontractors in the South/Southeast.

With over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry, Cheryl is a champion for collaborative working, knowledge sharing and best practice across the industry and has enabled construction professionals in making successful networking connections with their peers. She has not only led the way for women in Kent construction but has made a huge contribution to the sector’s business development.

Many will be familiar with Cheryl’s work (and steadfast work ethic) as the county’s business development guru - host and organiser of three key networking events including Building Kent Connections, the Kent Chamber of Commerce’s construction monthly KCFG (Kent Construction Focus Group) meeting and Kent Constructing Excellence. Yet, Cheryl is a quantity surveyor at heart.

She started her career managing contractual negotiations on regional projects whilst working for various specialist subcontractors and through the years progressed in her career and position, eventually managing projects for large national contractors. Her new appointment at GVE Commercial Solutions (Building) Ltd will provide the opportunity to build on her commercial project experience, whilst steering her career into the direction of dispute management and construction law.

Cheryl will not only be a part of GVE’s senior team; a role which requires industry-led contributions, corporate guidance, and input into the overall direction of the business, but also part of our in-house dispute management team. GVE’s expert dispute managers prevent, manage, and resolve contractual disputes including adjudications, and providing onward support to legal teams in arbitration and litigation.


Reflecting on her new appointment Cheryl said: “I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my construction career. This role will allow me to challenge myself and progress professionally as a specialist in construction law. I want to help others get the best results commercially for their projects by assisting and supporting negotiations, managing and resolving disputes.”

Steve Goodwin, Managing Director of GVE Commercial Solutions said of the new appointment: “Cheryl is a highly respected, hard-working, experienced professional who brings with her great technical ability, people skills and current industry knowledge which is second to none. Managing construction disputes requires technical expertise, forensic analysis, and a highly specialised knowledge of the contract. Cheryl has the background and negotiation skills required to successfully navigate complex cases with construction lawyers and contractors/subcontractors. I look forward to working with her on such matters.”

Matt Clark, Managing Director of GVE Commercial Solutions (Building) Ltd said: “We are delighted to have Cheryl onboard at GVE’s dedicated building construction consultancy. Her experience and expertise will be a huge asset to the team and will further the breadth of our commercial experience to ensure we achieve the best outcomes for our clients.”
