Aecom’s global engineering CEO David Glover is to leave the business at the end of the month.
He will become CEO of Intelligent Engineering (IE), which specialises in the sandwich plate system, a composite technology comprising metal plates and an elastomer core. Its markets include maritime, military, offshore and civil engineering.
Glover joined Aecom from Arup in 2011, where he was chair of its global property business.
He will continue to work for Aecom as a consultant, and will lead the firm’s involvement in the annual Serpentine Pavilion project in London’s Hyde Park.
IE’s current UK CEO Michael Kennedy said: “I am delighted to welcome David Glover as our new CEO, effective 1 November 2014. David’s arrival allows me to take on the role of Executive Chairman and focus on the development of strategic relationships with both current and prospective global partners.
“David comes with a strong engineering, business and delivery background from his years with Arup, and more recently as the global chief executive of building engineering at Aecom. David will be looking to integrate these skills across the IE team and business to strengthen both our product offering and our key relationships and to ensure that we continue to deliver a world class product and service to our clients.”
