Armitt in line to head ICE
Sir John Armitt, chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and former network Rail chief executive, is in line to become president of the Institution of Civil Engineers in 2015.
The ICE has elected Sir John to its presidential team, taking up a post as succeeding vice president in November 2012. This puts him in line to become president in 2015, subject to formal election by ICE council.
Current president Richard Coackley said: “Sir John brings extensive experience of the profession and the challenges it faces to the Presidential team. Most recently his expert leadership of the ODA has shown his dedication to excellence in civil engineering, particularly through driving best value as he has succeeded in delivering a world-class Olympics site on time and on budget. We are very excited to welcome him onto the team.”
