Leading European engineering consultancy, Grontmij has appointed Blair Mitchell as operations director and profit centre manager for the Leeds Water team.

Mr Mitchell joins Grontmij from Scottish Water, where he held the role of head of delivery, playing a leading role in the delivery of their capital investment programme and the development of a new joint venture to deliver part of Scottish Water’s future capital investment programme. He brings with him 20 years experience in working across the operational, asset management and capital delivery sectors in Scottish Water.

I am looking forward to working with the Leeds team, as well as the wider business, to continue to uphold Grontmij’s position as leaders in water engineering.”

His breadth of experience in programme and project management will ensure we continue to deliver added value to our clients.
