Mott MacDonald has appointed the former Transport for London Commissioner Mike Brown as an independent member of its shareholders’ committee.
It says that, as part of the 20-strong committee comprised of senior Mott MacDonald employee shareholders, Brown will “provide support, oversight and challenge to the executive board”.
It adds that, with extensive experience of infrastructure industry leadership, he will also advise on strategies and key issues, endorsing significant decisions and actions.
In his previous role as Commissioner for Transport for London, Brown was responsible for all public transport in the capital and oversaw one of Europe’s largest and most complex major investment programmes. Most recently he led the transport network’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that critical workers were able to get to and from work. He also led the negotiations with Government for emergency funding necessary for the continued operation of services.
Commenting on his appointment Brown said, “The organisation has a unique ownership model with an ethos based on working collaboratively with clients across many sectors in a way that really stimulates fresh thinking and adds strategic value. This is especially relevant as a model in the strange times we are living in.”
