Great news for our CEO Brian Palmer this week as he became one of 50 leading engineers from UK and around world to have been elected as Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering. This is an honour that recognises chosen individuals’ outstanding and continuing contributions to the profession.
Founded in 1976, the Royal Academy of Engineering is the UK’s national academy for engineering and technology. It unites the most successful and talented engineers from academia and business – Fellows – to advance and promote excellence in engineering for the benefit of society.
Brian joined other high profile figures receiving their Fellowship at the same time, including engineering professors from such universities as Cambridge, Manchester and Sheffield and senior figures of businesses like BP, Shell and BAE systems.
All 50 new Fellows were formally admitted to the Academy at its AGM in London on Tuesday the 18th of September and now add their expertise to that of nearly 1,600 world-leading engineers from both industry and academia.
Speaking about this great honour, Brian said:
“This is a tremendous accolade and I am delighted to be named as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. I am looking forward to forging close collaborative relationships and exchanging ideas and knowledge with my peers as part of my new role.”
Professor Dame Ann Dowling OM DBE FREng FRS, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, said:
“I am delighted to welcome all our new Fellows to the Academy – together they epitomise the very best of UK engineering. Representing the country’s most innovative and creative minds from both academia and industry, the achievements of our new Fellows highlight the critical role engineering has in addressing major societal challenges and ensuring our readiness for the future. We are very much looking forward to working with them as we continue to fulfil our vision of engineering at the heart of a sustainable and prosperous society.”
