Amey is pleased to announce the appointment of Danny Gilbert to the organisation to take responsibility for long-term strategic growth across its Transport Infrastructure business unit.  

Danny will create additional opportunities for clients to fully utilise the breadth of Amey’s service offering across its operational, design and advisory and analytics expertise, whilst also evolving Amey’s capabilities to meet future client needs. Identifying and implementing best practice, Danny will build collaborative relationships to inspire innovation and the formation of strategic alliances across clients, industry organisations and the supply chain. 

Joining Amey from Arriva, Danny spent 15 years in a variety of roles, overseeing business development, work winning and long-term strategic growth. This included introducing new business models with clients across Europe, expanding operational services, and successfully delivering significant organic and inorganic growth for the business.  

Peter Anderson, Managing Director of Transport Infrastructure, said: “I am delighted to welcome Danny to the Transport Infrastructure Executive Team to drive our customer-centric culture across the business. The UK Government has rightly set ambitious Net Zero targets, and we support all of our clients to advise, lead and deliver the sustainable solutions needed for future generations to prosper. Danny’s knowledge and relationships will enable us to use our engineering and operational expertise to help Amey and our clients meet these ambitions and transform the communities we within we deliver”. 

Most recently as Chief Commercial Officer for Arriva, Danny developed the commercial strategy and growth agenda for the international transport operator. Spending all of his 30-year career in the transport sector, he has held client, consultant and operator roles – providing a well-rounded perspective to enhance Amey’s customer-centric culture.  

Danny Gilbert added: “Working in harmony with our clients and stakeholders across the UK is key to ensure the value of infrastructure is both recognised and realised. Transforming infrastructure through the data-enabled digitalisation of services to improve mobility is critical to deliver a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive economy that benefits local people and local places”.
