CH2M Hill has appointed Sue Kershaw as director of rail for Europe.
She joins from developer Grosvenor, where she was director of programme management.
Prior to this, Kershaw was deputy director of transport at the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) where she led the delivery of a £1bn portfolio of infrastructure and transport projects, including Stratford Regional Station and Orient Way.
She was also responsible for the delivery and management of national rail, road and underground rail enhancements, including the Jubilee Line Upgrade and the Olympic Route Network.
Other projects Kershaw has worked on include the East London Line, Jubilee Line Extension, and the Bangkok Mass Transit System.
In her new role at CH2M Hill, she will focus on building the firm’s rail portfolio, working with Europe managing director for transportation, James Rowntree.
“Sue’s wealth of experience in delivering high visibility and high value transport infrastructure projects will be a great asset to CH2M HILL,” said Rowntree. “Her extensive background in project management and her understanding of the needs of both the public and private sector in client and delivery roles will help to ensure the continued growth of our European rail business.”
Kershaw said: “I’m delighted to be joining CH2M HILL at what is an exciting time for the rail industry in Europe. I’m looking forward to working with CH2M HILL’s existing clients and working to secure new projects and grow the business in Europe.”
