The Engineering Council would like to congratulate Professor Stephen Richardson CBE PhD CEng CSci FIChemE FREng on being nominated as Deputy President of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), and Ian Martin CEng FIChemE on his nomination for re-election as Honorary Treasurer. Both nominations will be voted on at the IChemE Annual General Meeting in May.

Professor Richardson is a Fellow of IChemE and the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) and Emeritus Professor of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London; he was awarded a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2015 for his services to the profession.

Iain Martin has served as IChemE Honorary Treasurer since May 2018 and currently holds a senior management role at Johnson Matthey PLC.

If elected, Professor Richardson will serve six months as Deputy President to allow time to familiarise himself with the activities of the Board of Trustees. He will then take the position of President in November 2019 for a period of 18 months to allow him to serve a full three-year term as an IChemE Trustee. Under this arrangement, both current President Ken Rivers and Past President Jon McGagh will extend their terms by six months.
