The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has elected Donald R. Boyken, chairman and chief executive officer of Boyken International, as a fellow, one of its highest honors.

In describing Boyken's honor, RICS President Barry Gilbertson explained, "Membership of RICS is normally via approved academic achievement and assessment of professional competence. However, from time to time we identify people, who because of their considerable knowledge and experience in land, property or construction, are eminently suitable for membership."

Boyken has been a construction consultant since 1974 and founded his firm in 1980. As chairman and CEO, he has the ultimate responsibility for technical review and quality assurance of the firm's work. He also serves as an expert witness for clients, when the firm is engaged in dispute-resolution assignments.

Boyken is a fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering (AACE), which he joined in 1981, and earned his Certified Cost Consultant designation in 1986. He is also a member of the American Institute of Contractors, the American Society of Testing and Materials, the American Arbitration Association and the American Institute of Architects.

He earned his bachelor's degree from Virginia Tech in 1974 and his masters of business administration from Auburn University in 1977. He and his wife live in Dunwoody, GA and have two adult children.
