Leaves post after 8 months

The Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE) has announced the departure of its CEO, Ed Hansom, ‘with immediate effect’.

In thanking Mr Hansom for the work he had done during his relatively short time with the Institution, IAgrE President Paul Hemingway said, “In view of the times in which we find ourselves and the changing work practices forced upon us, I am recommending to the IAgrE Executive Committee that we take some time to reprise the situation before seeking a replacement CEO.”

Mr Hansom was appointed during last summer to replace the retiring CEO, Alastair Taylor, and took up his post on 2 September 2019.

Prior to joining IAgrE, Mr Hansom spent 8 years in the navy where he was a marine engineer officer on various ships, saw active service in the Gulf before taking a shore post at the Defence Research Agency at West Drayton. Following his career in the navy, he joined the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, then the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology as Head of Professional Affairs.

In 2008, he joined the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as a professional development adviser before his appointment as IAgrE CEO.
