Highways England has named Peter Mumford of HKA as its interim major projects director until a permanent successor to Peter Adams, who is leaving to join London City Airport, is appointed.

Peter Mumford is a senior director with a breadth of experience across all aspects of professional technical and management services, including the leadership of significant programme management and major project teams.

He joins the Highways England executive team from HKA (formally Hill International) where he was Vice President. Prior to that Peter held senior positions within a number of construction industry related organisations including, AECOM, EC Harris LLP and Turner & Townsend.

Highways England says Peter’s appointment will allow for a seamless transition of the major projects directorate without any impact on its ability to deliver the government’s £15Bn road investment strategy.

Highways England chief executive Jim O’Sullivan said: “I am really pleased to have Peter join the executive team. It is important that we continue to have the right mix of individuals to lead the company as we deliver the challenging target we have been set by Government.”
