Mott MacDonald appoints Paul Hammond as global practice leader for its new Infrastructure Development and Economics practice

Mott MacDonald has appointed Paul Hammond as global leader for its new infrastructure development and economics practice. Paul will be responsible for leading the consultancy’s practice community and enhancing its global visibility. He will also engage with clients, advance staff capability by unlocking innovation and fostering best practice, and drive thought leadership.

Paul has considerable experience as a leader in the infrastructure and economics arena, with a long list of achievements in developing successful and profitable teams in a consultancy environment. His 25 years' experience include the delivery of consultancy and research assignments for clients including the International Finance Corporation, World Bank, European Investment Bank, European Commission, and national roles as economic adviser to the Local Government Association in England. In Paul’s previous role as global practice leader for economics, he has led the development of Mott MacDonald’s approach to business cases to support investible projects for our clients. More widely, Paul has delivered business growth as part of Mott MacDonald’s integrated transport business, by leading on innovative new business toolkits, helping develop the skills and expertise of staff and the appointment of new strategic recruits. A regular speaker and contributor to relevant thought leadership debates, Paul was also recently appointed as a visiting professor of economic development at the University of the West of England.

The new practice merges the expertise of Mott MacDonald’s award-winning economics and infrastructure finance global practices. It focuses on providing world class support services at the early stages of infrastructure planning – from funding through to economic, social and environmental impact assessment. Services provided include; infrastructure pipeline development and prioritisation; pre-feasibility and feasibility studies; local and regional economic development; economic appraisal and cost-benefit analysis; business case development; regulatory and policy advice; risk management and mitigation; and infrastructure finance and PPP advisory.

John Seed, Mott MacDonald’s global advisory services lead, said: “Innovation in project and programme initiation will help us open opportunities with our global clients. Paul’s role in leading the practice is to develop and socialise innovative thinking and best practice. This will continue and develop our track record in winning these opportunities and deliver for our clients.”
