I am the Chairman of Arup Group. I joined Arup in Sydney in 1972 and during my career I have been based in London, New York and Milan, where I was Europe Region Chairman from 2011 to 2014 before taking on the Group Chairman role.

My professional experience is mainly in the planning, design and project management of transport infrastructure, particularly major airport projects, which I have undertaken around the world.

In addition to my work with Arup, I am a member of the Board of Directors of British American Business and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. I am a former Trustee of WaterAid, an international charity dedicated to bringing safe drinking water and sanitation to the world’s poorest people, and a former Adjunct Professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
