Wojciech Szewczak of Ramboll will lead ACE activity for the next generation of business leaders

Following an open application process, Wojciech Szewczak of Ramboll has been appointed chair of ACE Emerging Professionals, the group for the next generation of industry leaders.

Reacting to his appointment, Wojciech, who is principal project manager at Ramboll in his day-to-day role, said: “I’m looking forward to working across the network to devise and deliver an ambitious and collaborative activity plan reflecting not only our unique professional needs, but also the passionate interests of the next generation of business leaders.”

“Emerging professionals are vital for the industry, not just in terms of skills and resource, but in providing the holistic approach necessary if we are to meet some of society’s biggest challenges – whether that’s devising solutions for climate change, building better communities which unlock social value, or delivering the built environment of tomorrow.”

ACE’s director of people, skills and culture, Claire Clifford said: “I would like to thank everyone who applied. We were delighted so many expressed an interest which is – I think – a positive reflection of the group’s impact to date. We’re pleased to welcome Wojciech and ready to support the group reach more emerging professionals and help to shape the industry for the better.”

Wojciech replaces Georgia Hughes of Arcadis who reached the end of her three year tenure. In her time she oversaw the rebranding of the group to ACE Emerging Professionals, as well as releasing major research into the Future of the Workplace and most recently Climate Changing the Built Environment, a collection of testimonials exploring how the move to Net Zero is affecting the industry.

Claire added: “We would like to thank Georgia for her work over the last three years, she oversaw impactful activity in difficult circumstances and leaves the group in a strong position with firm foundations for future growth.”
