Fernández-Ordóñez new secretary general of fib

Dr. David Fernández-Ordóñez is the new secretary general of the fib. He has supported the organization since 1999 and was both a deputy of the Spanish delegation and Chair of fib “Commission 6: Prefabrication” at the time of his appointment.

Fernández-Ordóñez commenced his executive duties in Lausanne on 4 January 2016, where he is being supported during the handover of responsibilities by former Secretary General Petra Schumacher. During the first quarter of this year Fernández-Ordóñez will split his time between Madrid and Lausanne to finalize his move to Switzerland. The international character of his work and his past dedication to associations such as ACHE and the Juanelo Turriano Foundation make him an asset to the fib. “I fully believe that he will assist the fib in its global development through efficient and effective management of the secretariat,” says Harald S. Mueller, president of fib.

At the time of his appointment Fernández-Ordóñez was Deputy Director of the School of Civil Engineers at the Technical University of Madrid. Earlier in his career he was Technical Manager for two Spanish producers of precast concrete.
