The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) announces that Chief Executive Jon Prichard will step down from his role on September 30, 2022 to take up a new appointment at the Mineral Products Association.

“Jon has provided outstanding leadership to the Institution since 2017. He has overseen significant progress towards the aims of Strategy2024 and the transformation of IChemE’s operations to provide a streamlined and more contemporary member experience. More recently he has steered the institution through the pandemic, ensuring that the capacity was there to both maintain member services and prepare for the future with the celebration of the Institution’s centenary and launch of the Sustainability Hub. Jon will leave the institution in a strong and stable position,” says IChemE President Jane Cutler in a press release from the organization.

Prichard says, “At a time when the institution is celebrating its 100-year anniversary and is starting to think about how its strategy will evolve through to 2028, I feel now is the right time to step down and allow my successor to inform this process and lead IChemE into the next phase. I would like to thank all of the members, volunteers, staff and my peers for their continual support in advancing the contribution of chemical engineering.”

Recruitment is underway for Prichard’s successor.
