Two of Julius Berger’s longest serving members of its Board of Directors, His Royal Highness Igwe Peter Nosike Anugwu and Engr. Heinz Stockhausen have retired from the Board of the company.
At a send forth party gin honour of the retiring boardroom veterans, which held at the penthouse of the iconic head office of Nigeria’s most successful and exemplary engineering construction company in Utako district of the nation’s capital city Abuja, it was an occasion for a well-deserved celebration of the two great men whose work and tireless dedication to the development and growth of the company’s business and brand could not just be swept under the carpet.
To set the lively tone for the event, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Julius Berger, Mr Mutiu Sunmonu, CON, said even though it was within the power of both corporate gurus to elect to retire and rest after such long, worthy and productive service to the company, he personally would have wished to still have them with him as the reliable boardroom juggernauts as he has come to know and appreciate them. That Julius Berger would experience a nostalgia for the retiring gentlemen was palpable as Mr Sunmonu continued his speech. He urged both men to kindly answer if and when Julius Berger calls to draw from their pool of worthy experience in the continuing progressive interest of the company.
The Vice-Chairman and former Managing Director of Julius Berger, Dr. George Marks, a most competent commentator on the company’s business in Nigeria, also took time to eulogise the virtues and friutful contributions of both Igwe Anugwu and Engr. Stockhausen to the growth and success of the company. Dr. Marks glowingly celebrated that Engr. Stockhausen was also so historically operationally involved in Julius Berger projects that his competent and remarkable signature of technical expertise, experience and strength remains enduringly visible in almost every major engineering infrastructure in Abuja
