Ben Bradford - BB7

Ben Bradford

BB7’s people-focused CEO prides himself on his approachability. He keeps in touch with as many people as possible and considers seeing people grow personally and professionally a business imperative. He prides himself on knowing where each of his people is in their career journey and places a lot of weight on shaping, nurturing, and enforcing our values and culture.

Why the name BB7? Ben founded the company on SEVEN guiding principles. These are our values and they describe the unique character, spirit and identity that are embedded in BB7.  Ben is adamant that we must get this stuff right, because we do not want to be just another organisation.

Under Ben’s stewardship, the firm now has a network of offices throughout the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. He’s an MBA with significant board-level experience in both commercial organisations and not-for-profit professional bodies. He was an executive Director in a multi-national fire engineering firm, a Non-Executive Director at the RICS and former President and Chairman of the board at the Chartered Association of Building Engineers. In 2019, the Mayor of London appointed him as a Non-Executive Director as part of the Skills for Londoners, Business Partnership.

He studied Building Surveying, Building Engineering and holds dual professional status as a Chartered Engineer and Chartered Surveyor and the passion he has for the company and his profession is unmistakable. For Ben it’s all about purpose, it’s not enough to simply practice engineering or risk management; he aims to make a significant contribution to the development of these professions.  He understands that to be a professional we must contribute to the public good.
