The seven-strong group boasts more than 70 years’ experience and will help deliver significant time and cost savings to Amey’s clients.
The new team, which has been assembled over the last few months, will also work on a joint project with Amey’s parent company, Ferrovial, to develop an Asset Management Centre of Excellence.
Most senior appointment Charles Oldham is now an associate director of consulting, while Jon Jarritt, Adam McCullough, Chris Beedie join as principal consultants.
Alongside other signings – Owen Johnson, Tom Bedeman and Ian Gordon – they will work across all of Amey’s key markets, including rail, highways, local government and facilities management.
Amey’s Consulting team has grown 10-fold in seven years and now comprises 2,300 professionals.
As part of this growth it recently bought Transportation Planning (International) and the rail consulting arm of White Young Green to boost its transportation skills.

“This is testament of our commitment to grow our consulting business on the national and international stage.”
