Kevin Riley has rejoined WSP after 15 years at Aecom and most recently Mott MacDonald, as director of transport in the Liverpool office.
Riley is a specialist in transport for regeneration and development schemes, and in returning to WSP will help in further developing the team’s growing capacity in both public and private sectors across the North.
Previously technical and project director at Mott MacDonald, he has over 25 years of experience in the industry, most well-known for his multi-disciplinary work on major sites, strategies and strategic projects.
Riley has led a variety of projects ranging from the transport strategy for Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, through to a masterplan for Blackpool Airport and feasibility of the now implemented Chester Bus Interchange.
He said: “It’s amazing to see how the company has grown and evolved during the 15 years I was away, particularly with the forthcoming relocation of the Manchester office to the First Street development.
“It’s with excitement that I prepare in helping to further expand our strong team in Liverpool and across the North, combining the range of other disciplines in the business to enhance our capability.”
The hire of Riley follows the recent recruitment of another Mott McDonald colleague, Keith Mitchell, who joined in July as transaction director in the public-private partnership and investment services team, based in Manchester.
