Mott MacDonald appoints a new non-executive board director

Mott MacDonald is pleased to announce the appointment of Claire Smith – formerly of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) – to the company's Group Board as a non-executive director.

Claire has a wealth of inter-national senior management experience and as a gifted linguist, speaking German, French, Mandarin, Spanish as well as English, will provide invaluable guidance to Mott MacDonald as it continues to grow its successful independent global business.

Born in Portsmouth, Claire read French and German at Queen Mary's College University in London before joining the FCO. At the FCO, where in 1982 she became Second Secretary at the British Embassy in Beijing, Claire held senior diplomatic roles in various locations around the world including Bonn and Islamabad.

Peter Wickens, Mott MacDonald's group chairman said, "We are delighted that Claire has joined the group board. As an independent, global employee-owned company, a major challenge for the Board is to retain the company's cultural values and at the same time being mindful and respectful of the diversities of our staff around the world. This is where Claire's experience in the public service will add tremendous value to the sustainable future of Mott MacDonald."
