MEDIA RELEASE – For immediate use, 22 July 2014

Kieran Devine appointed interim Chief Executive

The Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ) has appointed Kieran Devine as its interim Chief Executive.

An electrical engineer by training, Mr Devine is a highly-skilled leader with 30 years' experience in the electricity industry.

His career includes General Manager of System Operations at Transpower and leadership positions at Beca and the Electricity Corporation of New Zealand. He’s a Fellow of IPENZ and has a depth of experience as a director, advisor, chair and member of various industry associations and governing bodies in the engineering sector.

IPENZ President Dr Kevin Thompson says the organisation is delighted to have someone of Kieran’s calibre to lead the Institution until a permanent Chief Executive is appointed.

Mr Devine will work alongside current Chief Executive Dr Andrew Cleland from 27 August to 5 September when Dr Cleland will leave to assume his new role as Chief Executive of the Royal Society of New Zealand.

“The Board also would like to thank Andrew for his 14 years of leadership of IPENZ,” Dr Thompson says.

“His move to the Royal Society signals a return to his academic roots, having been a Fellow of the Society since 1995 when he was Professor of Food Engineering at Massey University.”
