Engineers Australia has announced its current CEO Bronwyn Evans AM will retire in April 2022, closing the curtain on a formidable career as a corporate leader.

Engineers Australia Chair, Nick Fleming was glowing in his praise of Evans, saying her extensive experience and future-focussed and innovative vision had delivered outstanding outcomes for members and the broader engineering community.  

“Dr Evans will leave Engineers Australia in a position of great strength, after working closely with the board to set a bold, ambitious agenda for strategic transformation, and for personally leading investment in employee culture and experience,” he says.

Leading the organisation since 2019, Evans’ major achievements since becoming CEO include successful advocacy for the compulsory registration of engineers, promoting women in STEM, and climate change initiatives - including a new flagship conference - Climate Smart Engineering, headlined by Nobel laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore.

“While the board and her team will miss her enormously, we know Dr Evans will continue to be a part of the Engineers Australia community and a leading voice across all facets of the profession,” Fleming says.

Engineers Australia will now begin the process of sourcing and hiring a new Chief Executive Officer.
