Steedman turns down ICE presidency

ICE vice president Scott Steedman stepped down from his role at the Institution this week, turning down the chance to become president in 2010.

Steedman has taken on a new job at contractor Foster Wheeler which means he will be unable to fulfil his duties as a member of the ICE executive board.

He was due to become senior vice president this November when Paul Jowitt commences his presidency, succeeding Jowitt as president in November 2010.

“I am standing down from the role of vice president at the ICE and regrettably withdrawing as a candidate for the Presidency in 2010 for work reasons,” Steedman told NCE. “I will be taking up a new role as director - engineering operations with Foster Wheeler Energy, based in Reading.The demands of this new role are unfortunately incompatible with the timing of the Presidential year.”

Steedman has left his role as director of group strategy for consultant HPR to join Foster Wheeler. Thomas Telford chairman Peter Hansford was elected vice president at the ICE council meeting on Tuesday when Steedman’s resignation was confirmed.

Hansford becomes senior vice president in November this year, and will move into position to take up the presidency after Paul Jowitt in 2010.

Executive board member David Balmforth will become a new vice -president from November.
