Motts appoint HS2 man as major projects director

Mott MacDonald has appointed former HS2 engineering director Chris Dulake as major projects portfolio director. Dulake joins the company in May and is set to play a key role in positioning Mott MacDonald to win for major UK international infrastructure projects.

Dulake has nearly 30 years’ experience as a civil engineer and has worked on major infrastructure projects around the world. At HS2, he was engineering director for Phase 1 and prior to this he spent seven years as chief engineer on the Crossrail project. 

Dulake will work across all of the sectors and regions Mott MacDonald operate in and should significantly strengthen the company’s service on major projects.

Mike Haigh, Mott MacDonald Group board director, said: “Chris is a fantastic appointment for us as he has great insight into the priorities for clients undertaking major infrastructure projects. He will be a hugely valuable resource for our staff due to his vast experience and our clients can only benefit from his knowledge to help realise their project ambitions.”

Mott MacDonald has confirmed to HS2 Ltd that Dulake will not be involved in HS2’s current procurement processes.
