Amey appoints group legal director

Amey has announced the appointment of Jayne Bowie to its board as group legal director.

Ms Bowie, who will take office next month, will be responsible for leading the legal and corporate services teams as well as overseeing risk management and compliance.

She joined Amey in 2012 after 11 years in private practice working as a project finance and corporate lawyer, including six years at law firm Freshfields.

The appointment takes the number of women on Amey’s board up to two, and will mean there are again 21 women serving on the boards of the UK’s top 20 contractors by turnover – restoring the numbers to parity with three years ago, after CN revealed this week that the numbers had declined.

Ms Bowie said: “There are a number of key company initiatives at Amey this year, including a renewed focus on performance and client delivery through more effective contract management.

“I’m very much looking forward to contributing to those initiatives and having a more pivotal role in the company going forwards.”

Amey chief executive Andy Milner said: “Jayne has been an integral part of our legal team for over four years and in that time has brought her experience to bear on several key successes for Amey, including our Allerton Waste Recovery Park project, Milton Keynes waste project and Scottish Roads (M8) project.

“I’m pleased to be welcoming Jayne to the executive team and the board.”

Interserve this week announced the appointment of Debbie White as chief executive. She will take up her post in September.
