Jo Streeten is Aecom’s head of project management for the greater London region. Jo specialises in delivering large, highly complex projects from inception through completion to realise her clients’ vision and ambitions. Her ability to develop programme strategies that negotiate politically sensitive and multi-stakeholder ensure that her projects are delivered efficiently in line with commercial realities.
Her experience working both client-side and as a consultant across the commercial, infrastructure, media, cultural, leisure and public sectors has provided her with an enviable position of witnessing firsthand the changing nature of cities and the various challenges they face in their constant evolution.
