Former Metronet CEO Andie Harper has joined AECOM as director of programme management for transport and infrastructure
Harper took the helm at Metronet following its collapse in 2007, and was responsible for running it under PPP administration before taking it into Transport for London (TfL).
He will lead AECOM’s transportation and infrastructure programme management work, primarily in the UK.
AECOM’s projects include the £100M Programme Partner role for Crossrail, as part of the Transcend Consortium.
AECOM’s Global Head of Programme Management Tim McManus, said, “Andie brings with him a tremendous knowledge and experience of the UK Transportation industry, and is a proven leader of major capital programmes. He will play a key role in expanding and advancing our Programme Management service offering in this key market sector.”
Andie has over thirty years senior management experience within the UK rail industry. He had been the managing director at Infraco JNP (now known as Tube Lines) from 1999-2002, prior to the start of the London Underground PPP.
He has project director for the Edinburgh Tram Project and program director for Washington Group International, a large US construction company.
