Armitt in line to become ICE President in 2015

The ICE has elected Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) chairman Sir John Armitt to its Presidential team, with a view to him becoming President by 2015.

Armitt will take up a post as succeeding vice president in November 2012. This puts him in line to become President in 2015, subject to formal election by ICE Council.

“Most recently his expert leadership of the ODA has shown his dedication to excellence in civil engineering, particularly through driving best value as he has succeeded in delivering a world-class Olympics site on time and on budget,” said ICE president Richard Coakley.

Armitt, a Fellow of the ICE, received a knighthood in the 2012 New Year Honours List for his services to engineering and construction. Prior to being appointed as Chairman of the ODA in 2007 he was chief executive of Network Rail.
