Andy, a Chartered Civil Engineer, joined Amey in 2006 following the acquisition of Owen Williams. He was then appointed Managing Director of Consulting in 2008. Andy grew Consulting to be one of the leading engineering and technical consultancies in the UK, as well as taking Amey onto three further continents (with contracts in Australia, Qatar and the United States) and winning the Sheffield PFI contract. He also increased the portfolio of the Consulting Business to include Highways and Rail from 2009.
Andy was appointed CEO of Amey in early 2016 and successfully navigated the business through a period of transition that included growing the strategic infrastructure business - winning Wales and Borders and the TransPennine contracts - and fully establishing the secure infrastructure business from the defence joint venture. Andy also successfully navigated the business through a difficult dispute leading to the exit of the Birmingham PFI and an overall restructure to improve efficiency within the business.
