Antony Oliver takes over as NCE editor

ANTONY OLIVER this week takes over as editor of NCE, becoming the sixth to lead the magazine since its launch in 1972.

He takes over from Alastair McLellan who moves to a new role within the Emap publishing group as editor in chief of the Construction Plus internet portal.

Oliver, a chartered civil engineer, left consultant Owen Williams in 1994 to join the NCE team as a reporter. He has since reported on some of the biggest stories in the industry including the 1994 Heathrow Express tunnelling collapse, construction of the Jubilee Line Extension and the aftermath of the Ramsgate walkway collapse.

He has also filed numerous on-the-spot reports from construction disasters around the world.

A regular award winner at the annual International Building Press Journalism Awards, Oliver has edited NCE 's news since 1996. Promoted to deputy editor in 1998, he has helped steer and maintain the magazine's editorial excellence, not least through NCE 's awardwinning relaunch last November.

The reshuffle at NCE also sees managing editor Jackie Whitelaw take on a wider role as the magazine's number two while continuing to spearhead the programme of special features and supplements.

Andrew Bolton takes over as news editor to once again give NCE a dedicated journalist running the news desk and directing the magazine's unrivalled analysis, news and technical features.

For full details of NCE's editorial team see page 3.
