Sweco UK taps up WSP's water man

Consulting engineer Sweco UK has recruited Ola Holmstrom from WSP to be its new head of water and asset management.

Originally from Sweden, Ola Holmstrom has spent 18 years working on environmental water issues in the UK, which most recently included being the flood risk lead for Crossrail 2 and water lead on HS2. He has been WSP’s head of water for the last seven years.

Sweco UK managing director Max Joy said: “We are very pleased to welcome Ola to the leadership team. He is a highly capable individual with a wealth of technical expertise and leadership experience who will help deliver our controlled strategic expansion plan.

“We have undergone significant business growth since we entered the UK market last April, and are clear about how we will maintain this momentum. This includes being committed to further enhancing our integrated offer across all of our disciplines in the UK and Ola’s appointment is a key component part of us achieving this objective.”

Ola Holmstrom added: “I am excited to be joining such an ambitious consultancy. Sweco has made great strides since launching in the UK and is ideally placed for further sustainable, profitable growth.”

Like Mr Holmstrom, Sweco is also Swedish. It acquired Dutch firm Grontmij in 2015 and last year rebranded Grontmij UK as Sweco UK. It includes the legacy consulting businesses of Carl Bro, Haste, KML and JA Kirkpatrick.

In the UK, Sweco employs 800 people and has offices in Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Maidenhead, Manchester, Newcastle, Peterborough, Solihull and Stockton-on-Tees.
