The Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) has officially announced the handover of the Presidency of the association.
This happened as part of the Institute’s Annual General Meeting which was held as virtual meeting at the end of July when the President Jonathan Pearson handed over the chains of office to Stephen Webb who will serve as the Institute’s President until June 2022.
Mr Webb who is an Associate with WSP and based in Taunton, Somerset said, “It is a privilege to become President of the Institute despite taking the reins in the slightly strange world of a virtual meeting”.
He is an Incorporated Engineer who gained his IEng in 2007 when he also joined the South Western Branch of the Institute, where he has served the branch as Treasurer for the last 13 years.
He said: “It is a privilege to take over from Jonathan and I hope I can help steer the Institute through the exceptionally difficult times we are currently facing.”
