EngineeringUK names new chief executive

EngineeringUK has announced the appointment of Mark Titterington as its new chief executive. Titterington, who will join the organisation in October, has a background in government relations and corporate communications and will join EngineeringUK after more than a decade at Syngenta, one of the world's leading plant science and agriculture technology companies, where he is currently the global head of corporate affairs and a member of the executive team. 

EngineeringUK is the not-for-profit organisation, which works in partnership with the engineering community to promote the vital role of engineers and engineering and to inspire the next generation. 

Commenting on Titterington’s appointment, EngineeringUK chair Malcolm Brinded said: “Mark’s business leadership experience and wide communications and policy background, together with the new perspective he brings, mean he is well placed to build on the achievements of Paul Jackson and the team and to work with the engineering community to deliver our collective ambition to inspire tomorrow’s engineers. I very much look forward to working with him.”

Speaking after his appointment was announced, Titterington said: “EngineeringUK is playing a critical role in inspiring the next generation to pursue careers in engineering, which is so important for the development and prosperity of our country. I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to join the team and lead the organisation in its next phase of development”.

Titterington replaces current chief executive Paul Jackson, who leaves EngineeringUK in July after eight years at the helm.
