Mace has strengthened is expertise in the transport sector with the appointment of two senior directors within its consultancy business. Carl Dainter joins the firm from AECOM to become head of aviation for consultancy while Caroline Lassen has been promoted as head of highways and ports.

“These appointments represent a real investment by Mace into the aviation, highways and port sectors: a demonstration of how seriously we are pushing for more sustainable growth in these sectors,” commented Mace’s chief operating officer for consultancy Jason Millett.

“We see real opportunity – both in the UK and further afield – in all of these areas, and will be proactively seeking new clients and projects across the globe.”

Carl Dainter joins Mace following a 16 year stint at AECOM. He has extensive experience of working through all stages in the lifecycle of complex aviation projects and has delivered schemes for many major clients across the world.

Carl’s appointment is expected to strengthen and expand Mace’s position in the aviation sector following recent contracts, which include the delivery of a new terminal and pier at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

The company has previously worked on several leading airport development projects across the world, including in Mumbai, Heathrow and Gatwick, Dublin and Doha.

Meanwhile Caroline Lassen’s promotion as head of highways and ports is set to strengthen the company’s transport sector expertise further. Caroline joined Mace in 2004 as a project manager and has worked across a large range of projects and sectors in her time with the company.

As an operations director she was named the Best Woman Consultant at the 2016 Women in Construction and Engineering Awards.

In her new role Caroline has been tasked with expanding the scale and scope of Mace’s mature highways offer, building on its relationships with key clients like Highways England. She is also leading the business’s work in the international port sector.
