Amey chief executive Mel Ewell to retire in March

Amey has announced that CEO Mel Ewell will retire at the end of March after 15 years with the company.

He will step down from his role on 31 March 2016 and be replaced by Andy Milner, currently managing director of the firm’s consulting and strategic infrastructure division.

Mr Ewell has been with the business for 15 years, during which time the company’s turnover has risen from £600m to more than £2bn.

Incoming CEO Mr Milner has been with the business since 2006 and was appointed as managing director of consulting in 2008. Prior to this, he held a role at consultants Owen Williams, which was acquired by Amey in 2006.

Mr Milner said: “I am delighted to be offered the opportunity to be CEO of this outstanding company, and wish to thank Mel for the leadership and guidance he has given to me over the last decade.

“I am inheriting a strong, profitable business that is extremely well placed to help our customers at a time of change in our markets.

“We will continue to deliver a first-class service, ensuring we get the job done for our customers as we have committed, safely and efficiently.”

Mr Ewell added that it had been “a difficult decision” to retire but added that it was “the right thing for me and the business”.

“I want to congratulate Andy, who will be an outstanding CEO and will oversee the ongoing and future growth of our business,” he said.

“Our focus remains on delivering excellent services for our customers through the transition and beyond.”
