FIDIC Appoints Manish Kothari as Chair of International Financial Institutions Committee

ACEC Chair-Emeritus Manish Kothari, president and CEO of Sheladia Associates, has been appointed chair of the International Federation of Consulting Engineers’ (FIDIC) newly created International Financial Institutions Committee.

The committee will lead FIDIC and its member associations in their relationship with international financial institutions, including the World Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the Asian Development Bank.

“I am honored to be named chair of this recently formed committee, as well as being reappointed as a member of the Risk Liability and Quality Committee”, said Kothari, who chaired ACEC in 2018-2019. “These appointments create new opportunities to share the work done by FIDIC with ACEC and that of ACEC with FIDIC. I look forward to working with my peers at home and overseas as I embark on this new journey.”

FIDIC is the global representative body for national associations of consulting engineers and represents more than one million engineering professionals and 40,000 firms in more than 100 countries worldwide. William Howard of CDM Smith serves as FIDIC president through 2021.
