Atkins recruits Arcadis boss

Lizi Stewart, the managing director of Arcadis’ highways and aviation business, is set to join Atkins.

In her new role as managing director for transportation, she will be responsible for driving further growth in the rail, highways and local transport markets.

Lizi will also oversee the delivery of existing major transportation contracts and look to increase the company’s project portfolio and client base in the UK.

Atkins CEO Philip Hoare said: “Lizi will lead our efforts as we focus on collaborating with clients in new and exciting ways by combining traditional engineering expertise with new technologies and agile, creative thinking.

“With the UK continuing to invest heavily in critical infrastructure, we’re well placed to capitalise on emerging opportunities as we look to help our clients shape the future of transportation.”

When she joins Atkins – a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group – on February 1, Lizi will be based at Nova North (pictured), SNC-Lavalin’s new European headquarters in London.
