Being a consultant requires an ability to balance conflicting priorities My main role is Business Development for the Integrated Transport Division which is always varied, whilst I also lead some projects with a research focus and am the Sustainability Champion for Transportation.

Why did you choose to join Mott MacDonald?

Because I was aware of a strong presence in the West Midlands, and I already knew a number of members of the team and had been collaborating on bids before joining.

What is the best thing about your job/role?

Variety. I have just moved jobs to become the development manager for the group’s urbanisation initiative which is an opportunity to support colleagues across the world. I also lead some projects with a research focus and I am the sustainability champion for transportation.

How would you describe the culture of Mott MacDonald?

There is a strong emphasis on people and developing a sustainable business for the future.

What has been your most memorable project?

My most memorable project involved, amongst other things, implementing a fleet of clean vehicles in Florence. Nothing compares to walking to work through Florence.

What is the best thing about living in country you live?

Believe it or not I like the temperate climate in the UK.

Where is your favourite place on earth?

Increasingly it’s the Shropshire Hills with good walking and beer, and no need to fly anywhere.
