Clinton set to become youngest ICE president

COLIN CLINTON, former maverick chairman of the ICE Midlands local association, is poised to be the Institution's youngest ever president in 2004.

Clinton is an associate director with Arup and business development manager of its transportation division at the new Coventry based campus.

He is now serving his second term on ICE Council and is vice chairman of the transport board.

His passion to spread the civil engineering message to the public led to the formation of a pioneering link up between the Midlands Association and radio station Heart FM.

He has also been instrumental in spreading the ICE message into eastern Europe and prompted formation of the Midlands Hungarian Branch in 1999.

Clinton's election was confirmed by a postal poll of Council members last week.

Until now the youngest ICE president was Sir John Fowler in 1865. Now 44, Clinton will beat this record by one month.

The vote also elected former Balfour Beatty group managing director Haro Bedelian as a new non-succeeding vice president.

Council confirmed last month that Mark Whitby will take over as president of the ICE in November. Subject to election by the Council in due course, Professor Adrian Long is set to take over in 2002, followed by Douglas Oakervee in 2003.
