ICE vice president Tim Broyd was officially elected as the next President by ICE Council last week.
Broyd will succeed Sir John Armitt in November 2016. He was initially put forward as a potential candidate for the 2016/17 presidency by Council in April 2013. The Presidential Selection Panel then unanimously nominated him for the role in February 2015, and Council have now formally elected him to serve for the session.
He is professor of built environment foresight and honorary professor of civil engineering at University College London.
He has spent most of his career developing and deploying innovative approaches to solve industrial problems, and has been corporate director of technology, innovation and sustainability at global engineering consultancies and has spent time running the civil engineering research company CIRIA.
Broyd’s current interests include digital engineering and infrastructure resilience. He is a Fellow of ICE and the Royal Academy of Engineering. He is also vice chair of the Construction Industry Council and a director of BuildingSmart (UK) and Ceequal.
