I lead Arup’s transaction advice team for transport. Based in London, I oversee delivery of UK and international assignments for clients wishing to buy, sell or finance transport infrastructure.

My background includes around twenty years of public policy and consultancy experience, working for the CBI, KPMG and the CAA. I also provided policy advice to the then newly elected Mayor for London and was head of business planning and performance improvement at Metronet Rail (BCV).
I recently co-authored one of the Sir Roy McNulty rail value for money studies and an Arup/RAC Foundation report Providing and Funding Strategic Roads.
I am also a contributing author to Building, Infrastructure Journal and PPP Bulletin.
