Mace has recruited Aecom director Carl Dainter as its new aviation head.
Mr Dainter, who spent 16 years at Aecom including a stint heading up the consultant’s aviation group for Europe, Middle East and Africa, joined the London-based firm last month.
His appointment comes as Mace looks to strengthen its position in the aviation sector following recent contract wins, including the delivery of a new terminal at Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport and as one of Heathrow’s programme client partners.
Mace also revealed that operations director Caroline Lassen has been promoted to head up its highways and ports division.
Ms Lassen is promoted to the role after 13 years at Mace where she has worked as a project manager in the UK and Middle East and spent the last two years as the operations director for the firm’s consultancy arm.
Mace’s chief operating officer for its consultancy arm Jason Millettt said: “These appointments represent a real investment by Mace into the aviation, highways and port sectors; a demonstration of how seriously we are pushing for more sustainable growth in these sectors.
“We see real opportunity – both in the UK and further afield – in all of these areas, and will be proactively seeking new clients and projects across the globe.”
