David Whittleton and Tristram Carfrae are taking on deputy chairman roles.
Arup is owned in Trust for the benefit of its 11,000-plus staff and the announcement was made by the chairman of the Arup Trustees, Terry Hill. “This is a very strong group to take Arup forward beyond 2014. The Trustees are convinced that the qualities Gregory brings to the role will combine well with the strategic skills and experience of the two deputy chairmen to create a truly effective leadership team.”
Hodkinson said: “It is a great honour to be asked to become chairman of this wonderful firm that I have been part of for decades. I’m sure there will many interesting challenges along the way, but with the great people we have throughout the firm, I have every confidence that Arup will continue to flourish and I look forward to getting started in April.”
