About Bernard Butler

Bernard Butler

Bernard was one of the founding fathers of the Institution of Works and Highways Management when it was formed in 1938. He served as President for the 1954 / 55 term and was Treasurer for many years. During a reorganisation of the Institutions affairs in 1984 Bernard returned to serve in office and was elected to his old post as Treasurer.

In 1984 the Institutions reserves were at a very low ebb however, since this time Bernards expert guidance and intimate knowledge of the financial markets (he insists hes not an expert) have resulted in the accumulation of substantial funds. It is these funds that support the current work of the Trust.

Bernard was 104 in February 2015 and still active, it is his wish together, with that of the Trustees of the Institution of Works and Highways Management Bernard Butler Trust, that the income from the investments will be used for the benefit of those who seek to improve the standard of expertise in the engineering or associated fields.
