Aecom’s Bob Pell appointed as Davis Langdon’s global chief executive Jeremy Horner ends a 20-year career at the consultancy.
Davis Langdon global chief executive Jeremy Horner has resigned after 20 years with the consultancy.
Mr Horner had led the merger between Davis Langdon’s global businesses and Aecom.
It comes just a month after Steve Waltho was appointed managing director for Europe at the property and construction consultancy.
An Aecom statement said Mr Horner had been instrumental in the successful integration, and in establishing the firm’s program, cost and consultancy global business line.
Bob Pell has been announced chief executive of the global program, cost, consultancy practice, which includes the operations of Davis Langdon.
A spokesman said: “Aecom wishes Jeremy the best of success in his future endeavours.”
Mr Horner, a qualified chartered accountant, worked at Deloitte and an investment bank before joining Davis Langdon as finance partner in 1992. He became managing partner and then, in May 2008, became chief executive for Davis Langdon in Europe and the Middle East.
After the Davis Langdon merger with AECOM in October 2010, he became global chief executive with responsibility for the businesses in Australasia, Europe, the Middle East, North America and Africa.
The company said Mr Pell, who was most recently Aecom’s senior vice president of operations and chief integration officer, has worked on planning and economic development projects in major cities around the world.
He said: “I have spent the past year working closely with the organisation’s leadership team and am encouraged by our potential for growth and that we can become the world’s leading provider in our field.
“By working closely with Aecom’s other businesses, we have a truly unique, integrated offer for market sectors in all geographies, and I will be focusing on taking this message to our current and future clients around the globe.”
