CESA appoints Zulch Lötter as president
20 January 2010, News

Newly appointed president of CESA (Consulting Engineers South Africa), Zulch Lötter, says that the presidency of CESA is the most important office he has held outside of UWP Consulting and he regards it as a great honour to be able to plough back into an industry of which he has been an active participant for close to 40 years.

In this role he aims to focus on improving the business environment for consulting engineers. It is important to him that both CESA members as well as their clients, conduct business with integrity and in a professional manner. He strongly believes that consulting engineers should not be perceived by clients and the public as commodities, but as their trusted advisors. To this end, CESA and its members must engage with politicians and decision makers to guide, advise and assist them in creating a sustainable South Africa where all inhabitants work towards the common goal of creating a future for our children.

Zulch Lötter was born in 1948 in Worcester in the Western Cape where his parents were wine farmers. He matriculated from High School De Villiers Graaff, Villiersdorp and thereafter graduated as a civil engineer from the University of Stellenbosch in 1970. Zulch, a CSIR bursar, spent a few years performing accident research at Transportec. In 1973 he joined Uhlmann Witthaus and Prins, which at the time was a three-man consulting engineering company. In 1976 he studied at the University of California in Berkeley as a Road Federation Bursar, and obtained an MS degree in Transportation Engineering. He is also a member of ECSA and SAICE.

After his return from the USA, Zulch was involved with the planning, design, rehabilitation and construction of roads and runways, as well as traffic engineering. Since 1984 Zulch has been a partner and later a director of UWP Consulting. In April 1999 he was appointed managing director of the company, responsible for approximately 300 staff members situated in 16 offices across South Africa, as well as subsidiary offices in Zambia, Tanzania and Botswana. Zulch has served on the CESA Council and EXCO since 2003. He has been chairman of CESA’s National Liaison, Finance and Staff as well as Disciplinary committees. He is also a director of two of the Section 21 companies created by CESA including the Project Development Facilitation Alliance (PDFA) as well as the Built Environment Professionals Export Council (BEPEC).

Zulch has been married to Marilien for the past 33 years and has three married children who are all back in SA after working abroad.

Congratulations also go to Naren Bhojaram from SSI Engineers and Environmental Consultants who has been appointed as deputy president of CESA.
