SAICE is delighted to welcome our new COO, Steven Kaplan, to our national office. He brings with him more than 30 years of consulting engineering experience. He has taken office as of 2 April 2013.
Steven is a graduate of the University of Cape Town, holding a BSc (Hons) in civil engineering. His experience includes an impressive track record of 25 years of project management and with this methodology in mind he hopes to enhance SAICE’s internal organisation processes and infrastructure which will allow the institution to continue to grow and fulfil its mission. Along with this, he is particularly determined to contribute to SAICE’s Civilution goal.
Steven has built up his experience working in infrastructure projects (with particular focus on the construction and project management sector), one of his highlights being his role as project manager on the Gautrain Rapid Rail Link (Hatfield Station) in 2006 and 2007.
He is a highly motivated and positive person who strives to motivate his team with his strengths of good communication and leadership.
We at SAICE look forward to working with Steven and helping him achieve his goals, one of which is the Civilution aim of “motivating engineers of all disciplines to conduct business differently, with a view to achieving an improved society”.
Steven enjoys walking and hiking trails in his spare time.
