ACE Mentor Program Recognizes Two Hill International Executives
Marlton, NJ -- Hill International, Inc., the worldwide construction consulting firm, has announced that two of its senior executives have been recognized by the ACE Mentor Program, which works to provide mentoring and scholarships to high school students interested in pursuing careers in architecture, construction or engineering.

Irvin E. Richter, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hill, has joined the national Board of Directors of ACE. As a Board member, he will help the program establish new chapters throughout the country and be a valuable advisor to existing chapters. Richter founded Hill in 1976 and is a world-renowned expert in construction contracts and claims. He earned his B.A. in government from Wesleyan University and his J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law at Camden. He is also a Fellow of the Construction Management Association of America.

"I believe Irv's vision and dedication to our industry will bring a valuable dimension to the efforts of the ACE national Board to establish an ACE Mentor Program in every state within the United States," said Charles H. Thornton, Ph.D., P.E., Chairman and founder of the ACE Mentor Program.

In addition, Raymond J. Martin, a Vice President of Hill, received an award from the New York metropolitan chapter of ACE for his participation in and service to the organization. A past President of the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York, Martin helped to focus the efforts of ACE and the General Society, which have similar aims and goals, to provide a coordinated program of opportunity for inner-city high school students and adults currently working in the building design and construction fields. Martin earned his B.S. in industrial engineering from Fairleigh Dickinson University, and has participated in such noteworthy projects as the United Nations Headquarters Complex in New York City and the New York State Supreme and Family Courthouse in Brooklyn.

The ACE Mentor Program, founded in 1994, serves high school students who are exploring careers in architecture, construction or engineering.
