New appointments strengthen our UK senior team

We have strengthened our senior team across the UK, with a series of new appointments reflecting and supporting our business’ future growth and ambitions.

James Corrigan will become UK Managing Director, Infrastructure and Simon Arnold is our new UK Managing Director, Real Estate Project Management. Meanwhile, Andy Scott will take up the newly created position of UK Managing Director, Defence, at a time of increased focus and investment on defence and security. 

James Corrigan has been in our business since 2005, when he joined as a graduate, and has most recently headed up the programme advisory division in the UK. Under his leadership, the division grew from a team of 40 to 130, focusing on the effective set up of major projects and programmes. His new role sees him take responsibility for all business services across the UK infrastructure market, including a particular focus on driving digitalisation in the infrastructure sector, and delivering on the transformative potential of major projects and programmes across the county. 

Simon has worked with us for seven years, leading the project management side of the business across London and the South East, which doubled in size under his tenure. Simon will be succeeding Chris Sargent, who has moved from this role to UK Managing Director, Real Estate. 

As our first UK Managing Director, Defence, Andy Scott will be leading the growth of our defence footprint, with a focus on improving productivity and establishing best in class delivery models for the UK’s defence programmes. Having been in our business since 2011, Andy has a strong track record of growth, leading our UK regional business across transport, utilities and power.  

Patricia Moore, UK Managing Director, said: 

This strategic reorganisation of our UK senior leadership is a sign of the exceptional trajectory of growth Turner & Townsend has seen across the UK and reflects our continued investment for the future. These appointments will ensure we have the capabilities in place to deliver for our clients and deliver the projects for the country.

"In the UK and globally, Turner & Townsend is charting a bold path. Our agile strategy has helped the business remain resilient to recent market disruption and is supporting clients to deliver impactful programmes, become more productive and meet their sustainability goals."
