Institution of Civil Engineers names new director general
6 June 2011: Leading engineering body the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), has confirmed the appointment of Nick Baveystock as ICE's next director general and secretary, following the retirement of Tom Foulkes at the end of 2011.
Nick is an ICE fellow with a background in the British Army and Ministry of Defence. He has extensive experience in leading major programmes in construction, training and change management, as well as commanding regiments and engineering operations. Over the last 10 years, Nick has been increasingly involved in international post conflict reconstruction and development in areas such as the Balkans and Southern Iraq where he was involved in the repair and management of the water, irrigation, oil and gas, sewerage and transport infrastructure in the region.
He will be joining ICE on 14 November 2011, undertaking induction and preparation before officially taking over the reins in January 2012. Tom Foulkes will continue in his role as DG until the end of December.
ICE began the search for a new director general in February 2011. ICE council appointed a selection panel drawn from council members and chaired by senior vice president Richard Coackley. Executive search company Spencer Stuart assisted the process.
Coackley commented: "Tom Foulkes, in nearly ten years as DG, has played a central role in transforming the Institution – in particular implementing effective regional structures, positioning ICE as the voice of infrastructure in the media and influencing political decision making to ensure long term investment in infrastructure.
He continued: "Nick Baveystock has been appointed to build on this platform, and will also focus on engaging ICE members, sharing the institution's knowledge and expertise more effectively, and importantly, further raising the profile of civil engineering."
