Parsons Brinckerhoff joins relaunched ACE


PARSONS BRINCKERHOFF last week became the first major consultancy to join the Association for Consultancy & Engineering (ACE) since the trade association relaunched last year.

The UK branch of the US consultancy giant has bucked the trend of large firms leaving the ACE. It follows last year's rebranding and relaunch (NCE 25 November).

In recent years the ACE has lost high profile members including Mott MacDonald, Atkins and Arup.

ACE chief executive Nelson Ogunshakin said the move was 'a vindication of the strategy of the new ACE to offer services relevant to the needs of the entire consultancy and engineering business in the UK'.

'Parsons Brinckerhoff was one of the large firms we approached. They shared our view of what the ACE should be doing, ' said Ogunshakin.

Parsons Brinckerhoff managing director Tim Matthews said: 'We have decided to rejoin the ACE because we feel it is now a much more modern, forward-thinking and influential organisation.

'If it is to be recognised as the voice of the industry, then it needs to have the support of large organisations such as ourselves.'
