Vice-President Maurice Buckley, Engineers Ireland
Maurice returned to Ireland to establish a subsidiary of a German Printing Company, System Label, in Roscommon town where he lives today. Over time, he built up a local R&D activity in the field of RFID. In a move to the Public Sector, Maurice became Chief Executive of the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) in 2007 with responsibility for the country’s standardisation, certification, and metrology activities. This work brought him into close contact with the wider engineering community and Engineers Ireland as over 50% of standardisation experts in Ireland and internationally are engineers. Since 2017, as executive Chairman of the Office of Public Works (OPW), he has lead a large-scale capital investment programme into improving Ireland’s flood defences and public buildings, both modern and heritage. The OPW has been associated with Engineers Ireland since the parallel formation of both organisations in 1835.

Maurice is a Fellow by Presidential invitation and became Vice-President in 2018.
