Four new members have been appointed to the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland (BPEQ) following approval by the Governor-in-Council.

Evelyn Storey, Sarah Hansen, Yvonne Pengilly and Peter Evans join BPEQ in place of departing members Greg McLean, Julie Mitchell, Mike Brady and Michael Duff.

Ms Story has been appointed as deputy chair and Engineers Australia representative; Ms Hansen is the community representative; Ms Pengilly is the construction industry representative; and Mr Evans is the elected registered professional engineer.

Chair Dawson Wilkie thanked outgoing Board members and congratulated the new appointees.

“Greg, Julie, Mike and Michael have been active and committed Board members, making a difference to this organisation and the profession of engineering in Queensland’, said Mr Wilkie.

“Special mention should go to Greg McLean who this year reached 13 years’ service on the Board."

“The current Board has worked extremely well together over the last two years and I wish to place on record my thanks and best wishes to Greg, Julie, Mike and Michael. With change comes opportunity and I look forward to working closely with Evelyn, Sarah, Yvonne and Peter."

“Each of the new appointees bring significant experience in their respective fields and I’m confident that the new Board will continue to operate effectively in carrying out its legislative obligations, but also to improve the registration system, BPEQ’s services and work positively for the profession”, said Mr Wilkie.

The four new appointments are for a period of three years commencing from 1 July 2016.
