Tony Mace, Industrial Advisory Board Member

Board member – Tony Mace

Tony works in the Engineering & Construction directorate of Southern Water Services Ltd on Electrical Instrumentation Control Automation (EICA) design for clean and wastewater capital works engineering projects. He also looks after various associated company engineering standards, works on technical solutions with other disciplines and operational areas of the business, and is involved with mentoring junior engineers.

He has been in the water industry for 30+ years, including substantial time with South East Water, and has been with Southern Water for the last six years. After starting his career as an apprentice industrial electrician in the late 1970s, he moved into the water industry in the 1980s, taking on increasingly technical roles, becoming Incorporated Engineer and subsequently Chartered Engineer within South East Water and then to Southern Water, holding his second role there now as a Principal Engineer.

Tony joined the IAB in 2017 as an Industrial Representative for the EDIAB, primarily to help link industry to the University of Brighton and with a two-way process to tap into skills and knowledge of each others organisations. With the IET being the professional institute for the EICA discipline, we have developed a MPD scheme for graduates with our mechanical colleagues and the IMechE, to provide an IET & IMechE accredited graduate scheme.
