ICE boss leaves to head up ACE

Ice hq 2by3

Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) head of policy and external affairs Hannah Vickers has been appointed as the new chief executive of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE).

Vickers replaces Nelson Ogunshakin who is leaving to join the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) in Geneva.

Vickers is the first woman to be chief executive of ACE and is also the youngest person to lead the organisation.

ACE chair Mathew Riley said: “Despite a strong shortlist, the board had no hesitations in offering Hannah the role as chief executive and we are delighted that she will lead ACE on behalf of its members.

“Her background as a civil engineer and as an advisor on some of the country’s largest infrastructure projects, as well as extensive government experience, means she is the ideal person to take ACE forward and to help it continue to champion infrastructure at the highest levels.”

Vickers added: “I am delighted to be taking over at ACE as we enter an exciting and evolutionary period for the consultancy and engineering industry with new opportunities across UK and international markets.

“I look forward to working with our talented staff and the full range of our members to build further success in the coming years.”
