The IMarEST's Chief Executive, David Loosley, has been welcomed onto the Board of Trustees at EngineeringUK, a not-for-profit organisation whose purpose is to promote the contribution that engineering and technology make to society. Terry Fuller, CEO of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management also joins the board this month as Libby Meyrick, CEO of the Institution of Engineering Designers, ends her term of six years.
Commenting on the appointments, Chairman Malcolm Brinded said: “The professional engineering institutions play an important role in shaping and supporting the vital work of EngineeringUK. I would like to thank Libby for her contribution and insight and welcome the new appointees from The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology and The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management. Both David and Terry bring with them a wealth of experience and share our ambition and determination to attract more of the UK’s diverse young talent into engineering.”
IMarEST Chief Executive David Loosley, who was recently appointed by the Secretary of State for Transport to the Maritime 2050 Experts Panel, said:
“I am delighted to have been asked to join EngineeringUK as a trustee and look forward to bringing a marine engineering perspective to the vital mission of inspiring the next generation of engineers. As an Institute, we are doing a great deal of work to engage young people in all aspects of STEM and I hope that together, we can make real progress in shifting the country’s perception of engineering and show it to be the exciting, creative and hugely important career it really is.”
