Peter Anderson, Amey’s managing director of transport infrastructure, said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Danny to the Transport Infrastructure executive team to drive our customer-centric culture across the business.

'The UK Government has rightly set ambitious Net Zero targets, and we support all of our clients to advise, lead and deliver the sustainable solutions needed for future generations to prosper.

‘Danny’s knowledge and relationships will enable us to use our engineering and operational expertise to help Amey and our clients meet these ambitions and transform the communities we within we deliver.’

Mr Gilbert added: ‘Working in harmony with our clients and stakeholders across the UK is key to ensure the value of infrastructure is both recognised and realised. Transforming infrastructure through the data-enabled digitalisation of services to improve mobility is critical to deliver a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive economy that benefits local people and local places’.

Mr Gilbert spent all of his 30-year career in the transport sector, where he has held client, consultant and operator roles, which Amey said provides a well-rounded perspective to enhance its customer-centric culture.

He is joining Amey from international transport operator Arriva, where he spent 15 years in a variety of roles, overseeing business development, work winning and long-term strategic growth.

Most recently as chief commercial officer, he developed the firm’s commercial strategy and growth agenda.
