Black & Veatch hires industry stalwart

US engineering giant Black & Veatch has appointed industry stalwart Scott Aitken as managing director of its European water business.

Aitken, who left CH2M Hill at the end of last year, has 27 years’ experience in the sector and is a former chairman of the water special interest group at the Association for Consultancy and Engineering.

He will take on responsibility for Black & Veatch’s asset lifecycle services across the continent.

“Meeting our business goals requires an effective leader with a deep understanding of the UK and European water sector,” said Cindy Wallis-Lage, president of Black & Veatch’s global water business.

“Scott has both these qualities in abundance. He is a proven leader with a huge depth of water industry experience in both construction and professional services and is ideally placed to provide the strategic direction needed to grow our UK opportunities and deliver a long term sustainable and resilient water business.”
