Sir Robert Mc Alpine funded the initial establishment of the Consulting Association in 1993, providing £20,000, around half of which was used to buy a blacklist database from the Economic League and hire one of its former employees, Ian Kerr, as manager.
Company director Cullum Mc Alpine served as chairman of the Consulting Association for some years before it became publicly implicated in a construction industry blacklisting scandal in 2009 and was wound up.

William was appointed Chairman while Alfred remained in charge of the operation in the north-west subsidiary, where he had been since 1918.
