Mott MacDonald appoints Rachel Ellison as managing director for its Water and Environmental Unit

Mott MacDonald has appointed Rachel Ellison as its new managing director for its Water and Environment Unit.
Rachel joined the company from Costain in 2019 where she gained experience as an engineer, project director and business leader working across a range of sectors on some of the largest and most challenging infrastructure schemes in the UK.

In her new role Rachel is responsible for leading and developing Mott MacDonald’s Water and Environmental business within the company’s UK and Europe region and supporting the growth of its Water and Environmental service offering globally.

Commenting on her appointment Rachel said: “It is a huge responsibility and privilege to join Mott MacDonald to lead its water and environmental unit at a time of unprecedented change for our industry, where we are being asked to step up and play our part in finding innovative and sustainable solutions to some of the world’s most immediate problems.

“Population growth, urbanisation, climate change, diminishing natural resources and an aging infrastructure are just some of the pressing issues we come face to face with daily. The great news is that at Mott MacDonald we have incredible people with the technical excellence, creativity and passion to take on these global issues and make a real difference to society.”

Rachel is a Fellow of the Institute of Civil Engineers and is passionate about developing, mentoring and inspiring future generations of engineering and environmental professionals. She also leads Mott MacDonald’s Advance group for Disability and seeks to create a more inclusive working environment where everyone has the opportunity to be their very best.
