Further to our announcement a few weeks ago, we can now provide an update on the situation regarding our chairman.
As you may remember, we shared the news that after 14 years at the helm of ACE, Dr Nelson Ogunshakin OBE was stepping down from his role as chief executive, as well as resigning the chairmanship of EIC.
ACE have today announced that their search for a new chief executive is complete and will be welcoming Hannah Vickers to the role in September. More on her appointment can be found at the ACE website. She has a wealth of experience in engineering, but also in government at the Environmental Agency where she worked for 10 years.
On behalf of EIC’s members, stakeholders and staff, I’d like to welcome Hannah to her new role. We’re looking forward to continuing the strong relationship we currently have with our sister company ACE under her future leadership. I’m sure we will continue to work closely and collaboratively where possible and that as two distinct, but related, organisations we will continue to learn from each other.
I will soon be in a position to share more news around a new chairman at EIC. In the meantime I would like to thank you for your continued support and understanding.
