Rob Billingham was previously a senior project manager in the aviation team at Morgan Sindall Professional Services and has worked on several projects at Heathrow and Gatwick airports, including the new baggage-handling system at Heathrow Terminal 3.
His new role will primarily involve business development and operations management. He will report to MSPS managing director Martin Lubieniecki.
Mr Billingham said: “I’m delighted to be taking on this role at such an exciting time for the aviation industry. More people are flying than ever before, global competition is driving innovation in infrastructure design and passenger expectations are ever increasing. All of this is creating a need for more capacity and world leading airport design to allow the UK to succeed in a competitive global market. This is opening up numerous opportunities within the sector and I look forward to working with our team of specialists to build on MSPS’ excellent reputation in this area.”
MSPS has a specialist aviation team of more than 40, with offices across the UK, including at Heathrow. It is also on the framework agreement for the Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton Airports (AGS) consortium and has recently completed a feasibility project for Sydney Airport in Australia.
