Haynes leaves Highways Agency early

LAWRIE HAYNES is to step down as chief executive of the Highways Agency to become a partner at management consultant Price Waterhouse-Coopers.

The move comes just months after Haynes renewed his contract, having notched up five years with the Agency since its creation in 1994. He had been expected to stay for a further three years.

Haynes will leave in November. His role will be taken over temporarily by Peter Nutt, currently network and customer services director. The position will then be advertised.

Haynes joined the Agency after being head hunted from British Aerospace where he led the contracts department. Although he studied law at Edinburgh's Herriot Watt University, this came after nine years working as a technician in the RAF. At the Agency, he managed the gradual shift away from road building and just recently guided it through a five year review.

He said: 'It has not been an easy decision for me to leave the Highways Agency. I very much respect the professionalism of the staff and their commitment to public service. Working with such a team has been a rewarding experience.'
