Dr. Ricky Selle graduated in 2000 from the University of Leipzig as industrial engineer at the Institute for Solid Construction under Prof. Gert König. After working for KHP in Leipzig for one year, specializing in reinforced concrete and steel construction, he went to Ohio University in the USA for two years and worked on various research projects on the subject of concrete pavements.
Back in his hometown, Ricky Selle worked as managing director in a planning office before founding his own architecture and engineering firm with a partner in 2006. An apartment building designed by his office in Leipzig was the tallest wooden house in the new German states (excluding Berlin) when it was completed in 2013, with four floors. The hybrid ceilings (wood-concrete composite) he developed as part of his dissertation were installed in the house.
From 2011, Ricky Selle increasingly took on projects for Selle Consult in a parallel capacity. His focus was initially on static calculations of pipelines. In 2015, he became managing director alongside his father, and in 2016 he also became an owner of Selle Consult.
Since then, he has developed Selle Consult into one of the leading consulting companies for supporting structures of underground technical infrastructure made of plastics, helping to shape the relevant national and international regulations.
Since 2010, Ricky has lectured at the HTWK Leipzig within the master's program on the topic of the wood-concrete composite. He also was a lecturer at the University of Leipzig from 2014 to 2016 within the series of lectures on planning and operating municipal infrastructure.
In 2020, Ricky Selle was approved publicly appointed and sworn expert for the design of pipes and manholes including corresponding rehabilitation procedures.
Ricky Selle is married and has three grown children.
