Pone, originally from Mozambique, was previously construction firm ABB’s country managing director in the United Arab Emirates.

Pone said: “I share the same values and passion for Africa as Aecom and look forward to implementing the company’s strategy and vision for the region, helping to take the business to a leading position in the continent.” 

Steve Morriss, Aecom’s chief executive, Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and India, said: “The Africa region plays an increasingly important part of our business in Aecom.
