Danny Gilbert joins the company from Arriva where he was chief commercial officer for the transport operator. 

He has 30 years’ experience in the transport sector, holding a variety of client, consultant and operator roles, overseeing business development, work wins and strategic growth. 

Gilbert will complement Amey’s operational, design and advisory and analytics expertise, inspire innovation, and form strategic alliances across clients, industry organisations and the supply chain.   

“Working in harmony with our clients and stakeholders across the UK is key to ensure the value of infrastructure is both recognised and realised,” said Gilbert. “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.”   

“I am delighted to welcome Danny to the Transport Infrastructure Executive Team to drive our customer-centric culture across the business,” said Peter Anderson, managing director of transport infrastructure at Amey.  

“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.”
