Mace, the global consultancy and construction company, has announced the appointment of Hannah Vickers as its new Chief of Staff to Mark Reynolds, Group Chief Executive.
The Chief of Staff position is a new role for Mace and will directly support Group CEO Mark Reynolds and the Mace Executive Board across a number of high priority external and internal programmes.
Hannah’s primary task will be helping to embed the company’s new 2026 Business Strategy across Mace’s four Engines for Growth; driving growth and the delivery of our purpose and strategic priorities, with a particular focus on the net zero carbon agenda, construction to production and digital and data.
The new Chief of Staff will also take on a number of other major external and internal responsibilities, including expanding and deepening the Group’s relationships with target clients and senior industry and Government stakeholders. Internally, she will lead a number of major internal change programmes, driving operational efficiency across Mace and working closely with the Executive Board.
Hannah joins Mace from the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), where she has served as Chief Executive since 2018. In that role, Hannah has led the creation and delivery of ACE’s ‘Future of Consultancy’ programme, reshaping the future of the built environment consultancy sector.
She has also provided significant direct support for the Construction Leadership Council on a number of programmes, including taking a lead role in the creation of ConstructZero, an industry-wide programme to address carbon emissions in construction.
Hannah will take up her new role in July this year.
Mark Reynolds, Mace Group Chief Executive, said:
"Our new 2026 business strategy has set some very bold and ambitious goals for Mace over the next five years; and our focus now must be bringing our plans to life across the organisation; driving organic growth in our target markets and embedding our new purpose and priorities.
"Hannah is a highly effective leader who has delivered a number of major industry change programmes over her time at ACE, and has advised Ministers at HM Treasury on infrastructure delivery policy. I’m thrilled that she is joining the business at such an important time and I look forward to working with her to realise our ambitions."
