Mott MacDonald has appointed Phil Redman as director of its Newcastle office, succeeding Alan Hymers who has retired after 13 years with the consultancy. Phil will be responsible for managing the company’s business in the north east of England.
Phil is a chartered building services engineer with 25 years’ industry experience. Since joining Mott MacDonald in 2002 he has helped develop the consultancy’s technical advisory expertise in the buildings and infrastructure sectors. Most recently, Phil led the London team of Mott MacDonald’s strategic advisory business. In this role he supported the team’s diversification into consulting on building information management and facilities management, as well as leading on the major healthcare public-private partnership programme in Turkey. Prior to this, Phil oversaw all project and business development activities for the consultancy’s Canadian infrastructure finance team. This included Mott MacDonald’s role as independent certifier on the Centre hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal project, the largest hospital redevelopment in North America.
Additionally, Phil has vast experience of providing leading technical advisory services to a range of complex users including the police, law courts and schools. As well as providing expert advice, he has managed teams made up of specialist engineers, architects and representatives of organisations in both the public and private sectors.
Commenting on his appointment, Phil said: “Having grown up in the north east and still having strong personal ties to the area, I’m thrilled to be able to bring my knowledge back for the benefit of the region. Mott MacDonald’s commitment and connection to the north east stretches back to the construction of the Tyne Bridge and we remain focused on delivering best value and sustainable solutions for our clients. We are known for our close working relationships with local organisations and I’m looking forward to supporting our team in further developing these associations.”
