Global consultant Rider Levett Bucknall’s (RLB) UK arm has appointed a new national head of project management.
Guy Robinson had previously been the firm’s head of London project management.
Mr Robinson joined the firm in 2016 from rival Blackrock Programme Management. He had previously spent 10 years as a director at Aecom.
RLB said Mr Robinson will be tasked with leading a team of 150 project and programme-management professionals nationwide that will account for over 35 per cent of its UK turnover in 2018-19.
The ex-Aecom director brings more than 25 years’ experience to the role across a range of sectors including commercial, mixed use, residential, industrial, hotels, education, healthcare, aviation, sports and leisure.
He has extensive experience of working in the Middle East, as well as in the UK market.
RLB UK and global board director Andrew Reynolds said: “We see project management as a key area of growth for RLB in 2019 and beyond, and consider Guy and his team to be critical to this success.”
In October, RLB poached Mace’s regional director Steve Gillingham as its new national head of public sector.
