Felipe Andre Isore Gutierrez
Felipe is a construction consultant with over 23 years’ professional experience and has earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting (Brazil), a master’s in economics (Holland) and LLM in construction law and arbitration (UK). He has multiple construction and engineering related certifications, including cost engineering by the Brazilian Institute of Cost Engineering (IBEC), project management (PMP), construction audit (CCA), and is an accepted member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS, UK).
Felipe joined AACE International over 12 years ago and has contributed to the industry and the association through presentations, webinars, and technical articles, globally. Felipe is based in Houston, Texas, from where he leads the development of a global engineering consulting firm he founded, CONEXIG. He is currently serving his second year as the first International director of the AACE Brazil Section. At the section, he launched the CONNECTION Program which entails sharing knowledge from experienced and successful AACE members across the world, though online interviews, with other members that would not, otherwise, have this opportunity to learn.
Felipe regularly acts as an expert witness in construction disputes and often, refers to RPs such as the 10S-90, 17R-97, 18R-97, 22R-01, 25R-03, 40R-08, 41R-08, and 62R-11. In 2021, Felipe organized joint online events and collaborated with various AACE sections including Boston, Spain, Peru, and others. In 2021, Felipe also served as a committee member of the “Section task force” appointed by the AACE Board to prepare recommendations on an actionable path forward for the AACE Section system.
If elected, my goals for the organization will include supporting the Board of Directors assuring that AACE succeeds in its mission through initiatives that help the organization increasing membership globally; increasing collaboration amongst Sections; improving knowledge generation and sharing, while enhancing performance for matters such as inclusion and diversity.
