Steven works for Royal HaskoningDHV as Director of Business Development - Water Europe. Delighted at being made an ICE Fellow he said:

"The recognition by the ICE and my peers is terrific, but what this really gives me is a renewed motivation and responsibility to apply my 25 years of experience in shaping and influencing the debate and responses regarding the water and urban challenges we face in the UK and Globally, and how civil engineers should work with communities and other professionals to shape the future and our choices."

Jonathan is Development Director for Abu Dhabi Airports. He had worked extensively overseas and on similar projects in Australia and South Africa as well as Heathrow Terminal 5. He said:

"I am honoured to be made a Fellow. Qualifying as a civil engineer requires dedication, hard work and a passion for what you do. But it offers a fantastic career that allows you to work as a member of a team on projects that contribute to the wellbeing and improvement of communities and society all over the world."

Respected internationally, ICE Fellowship is the highest grade of ICE membership and a benchmark for those practising at the top level within the profession. Only those with a position of responsibility in the planning, design, construction, maintenance or management of important engineering work can be awarded this level of membership and add the letters "FICE" to their name.

Congratulating Steven and Jonathan on their fellowship Glen Owen, ICE East of England Regional Director, said:

"Gaining ICE Fellowship is an exceptional achievement and I warmly congratulate them on reaching the higher echelons of civil engineering. This highly-respected accolade recognises a significant contribution to the civil engineering profession and seniority in the industry."
