Consultant WYG chief executive Paul Hamer has taken up his role as Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) as 2012 chairman.
Hamer succeeds Graham Nicholson, who continues to serve as ACE’s immediate past chairman.
He became chief executive of WYG in March 2009, prior to that he was managing director of VT Nuclear Services, part of the VT Group. He has also held several senior executive positions in the contracting, nuclear, oil, chemical and petrochemical sectors.
ACE chief executive Nelson Ogunshakin said the ACE was “very fortunate” to have a “chairman of the calibre” of Hamer.
“During 2012, we have a great opportunity to globally showcase our talents and skills through the world-class infrastructure that has been created for the London Olympics,” said Hamer. “In addition, the ACE will be busy preparing the foundations for its centenary celebrations in 2013”.
