Eryl Evans, who has led Currie & Brown’s infrastructure group for the past 10 years, will step into the new national role, with a focus on the five-year horizon. He will lead on developing services and strengthening capability throughout the UK and mainland Europe.

Meanwhile, the firm has added Ian Bayes as senior director, Phil Iwobi as director and David Hutchens as associate director, all within its infrastructure team in the UK. They bring extensive commercial and project management experience, with specific expertise in major project procurement, contract management, cost planning and delivering business benefits.

“Our wealth of experience consulting on national projects, from HS2 to Tilbury2, means that we are ideally placed to support the sector, and this is reflected in the success of the practice,” said Evans. “We’re incredibly pleased to welcome Ian, Phil and David into the team.”

Earlier this year, Partnerships Bulletin revealed that Faithful+Gould’s PPP team had transitioned to Currie & Brown, as the company looks to boost its presence in the market.
