Aecom has made two senior appointments to strengthen its consultancy and sport businesses.
Gordon Wilkinson (below), formerly of Arup, will lead its global consultancy services business, UK’s Building magazine reported. Wilkinson held a similar role at Arup, overseeing its consultancy business in the UK, Middle East and Africa.
Aecom has also promoted Alf Oschatz to lead the firm’s sports group in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Oschatz steps up from South Africa-based engineering and design firm BKS, which was acquired by Aecom in November.
He has experience working on a number of international sports tournaments, including the 2006 and 2010 Fifa World Cups in Germany and South Africa.
Aecom’s global sport business is masterplanning the Rio 2016 Olympics, off the back of performing the role on the London 2012 Games, and has delivered over 100 stadiums and arenas.
