HS2 name CH2M's Roy Hill interim CEO

CH2M European managing director Roy Hill is stepping back into High Speed 2 as interim chief executive, New Civil Engineer can reveal.

Hill will take charge in an interim capacity while a long-term successor to Simon Kirby is found.

It will be Hill’s second stint at High Speed 2 promoter HS2 Ltd, having previously led the project through its early stages as delivery director.

Then, he played a significant role in ensuring contractors and suppliers were engaged early in the programme.

He will now join the project at a crucial time, with an announcement regarding the winners of enabling works contracts due and assessment of bids for the main civils works about to get underway.
