Association for Project Management (APM) Board trustee Mike Wallace – a respected and experienced member of the project management community – has passed away, it has been announced.
Mike was elected to APM’s board in 2019 and was previously the youngest person ever to achieve Registered Project Professional (RPP) status; a feat he achieved in 2015, aged 29. He later went on to achieve Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) status.
His involvement with APM over the years saw him judge the organisation’s annual Project Management Awards, contribute to the development of the Body of Knowledge 6th edition, peer review APM publications and serve on the committee of the association’s London Branch.
Away from APM, his project and programme management expertise ensured the successful delivery of capital programmes. After studying engineering science at Keble College in Oxford, Mike joined Mott MacDonald where he managed rail projects. He also worked with the Nichols Group and PA Consulting. During his career he successfully delivered large procurement projects and business change initiatives around the world.
Paying tribute on behalf of the Board of trustees, APM chair Debbie Lewis said: “Mike was a delight to work with and entered the boardroom full of energy and enthusiasm. I know all who knew him will miss him personally, as well as his commitment to the profession and APM. Our thoughts are with his family.”
