The Society of Operations Engineers (SOE), a partner company in the CV Show, has named Bruce McGill as its new chief executive officer.
McGill, who will assume the role on 3 September, succeeds Nick Jones, interim CEO for the last eight months, having been CEO in a previous spell with SOE from 2007 to 2013.
Jones said: “Bruce is the right leader at the right time for SOE. It was a great honour to be brought back to SOE and work with some fantastically talented employees and a committed Trustee Board. Under Bruce’s leadership, I fully expect this team to flourish, and continue to make significant progress in our professional sectors and the wider engineering community.
McGill most recently served as director of membership at Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and was head of marketing at Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) for almost nine years.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at the SOE and helping to build on the firm foundations that have already been established by the board, volunteers and staff.
“The opportunity ahead for SOE is huge, but to take it, we must focus our efforts and continue to change to meet the needs of our members. SOE is an organisation that has a positive and meaningful impact on the careers of engineers, and I believe that there is great potential to extend and develop that value even further.”
SOE works to advance operations engineering for the benefit of everyone through education, training, study and research. Through its Professional Sectors of IRTE, IPlantE and BES, it directly influences the road transport, plant and engineer surveying sectors, developing best practice and improving compliance across the board.
