Engineering and consulting firm AECOM has appointed Adrian Rees as Director in the firm’s Asset Management business. In his new role, Rees, who joins from ICS Consulting, will be responsible for leading the company’s asset management capabilities in the UK & Ireland, with a focus on the water sector.
Adrian Rees has nearly 25 years’ experience in regulatory and asset management planning. Prior to joining AECOM, he worked at ICS Consulting, a Tewkesbury-based firm that specialises in consultancy and support services to asset intensive businesses, where he provided consulting advice and investment planning services (e.g. portfolio optimisation, AMP period preparatory, price review) to a range of clients. Rees previously held positions at Thames Water, Yorkshire Water and Ofwat.
Last month Rees decided to embark on a new challenge, and joined AECOM, with approximately 95,000 employees one of the globe’s largest engineering, construction and consulting firms. In his new role as Director of Asset Management – a newly created position – he will work with different teams and disciplines from across the business to develop a fully integrated service offering for the water sector. Rees has been tasked with leveraging AECOM’s existing water asset management expertise (which includes a new consortium with software company SEAMS) to grow its footprint in the industry.
Commenting on his new challenge, Rees says “Many clients are looking for new ways of managing the services delivered by their assets. I’m looking forward to providing our clients with integrated support across a diverse range of challenges through the 2019 Price Review and beyond.”
Asked for how he believes AECOM will differentiate itself from the competition in the water industry, he points at the firm’s “unique combination of investment planning and delivery capabilities”, which combined serve as a key differentiator, “helping organisations optimise the whole life management of their assets”.
Marc Barone, Managing Director of AECOM’s UK & Ireland Water industry group, comments: “With increasing pressure on the UK water sector, improving the performance of existing assets and making them more resilient is becoming a top priority. Adrian brings extensive experience in water asset management and regulation to AECOM, where he will help our clients develop long-term asset management processes that enable them to make more informed investment decisions.”
