Aecom poaches EFA deputy director to lead global education team

Aecom has appointed the Education Funding Agency’s Mairi Johnson to lead its global education team from January 2014.

Ms Johnson is currently EFA deputy director for design, where her responsibilities have included developing baseline designs for primary and secondary schools.

Aecom global head of buildings and places Jason Prior said the appointment of Ms Johnson would strengthen the firm’s global education team.

Mr Prior said: “We are in the midst of a global revolution in the design of schools and other education facilities, one in which Aecom has taken a lead through its work on major programmes in the US, Middle East and Africa.

“The UK has always been a world leader in driving innovation for education and having someone with the experience and quality of Mairi lead our global education team will greatly enhance our integrated offer, as we strive to provide the best possible learning environments for young people across a range of social and cultural contexts,” he added.

Previously Ms Johnson was director of design and sustainability at Partnerships for Schools.
