Former Arup chief Philip Dilley named as potential boss of Environment Agency

Former Arup chairman Philip Dilley has been chosen as the government’s preferred candidate to succeed Lord Chris Smith as Environment Agency chairman, environment secretary Owen Paterson has announced.

Paterson said Dilley was selected from an open competition and he will now face a pre-appointment hearing in front of the Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs select committee.

Dilley stepped aside from the role of Arup chairman after serving his five year term earlier this year to be replaced by Gregory Hodkinson.

Dilley is also chairman of London First and a member of the Governing Council of Imperial College. From 2011 to 2013 he was a member of the Prime Minister’s Advisory Group.
