Roma Agrawal joins the consulting firm from Interserve

Aecom has appointed Roma Agrawal as associate director, with responsibilities for both business development and project delivery work.

Formerly at Interserve, where she was design manager, Agrawal was previously associate director at WSP and has worked on projects including The Shard at London Bridge, One Nine Elms and Crystal Palace Station.

A chartered engineer with the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Agrawal is a fellow of RICS and holds a masters degree in general structural engineering at Imperial College London and a degree in physics from Oxford University.

She has won numerous awards and last year was included in the Top 50 Women Engineers in the UK list, compiled by The Telegraph and Women’s Engineering Society.

Commenting on her new role, Agrawal said she looked forward to working on Aecom’s “wonderfully diverse range of projects while also continuing to promote engineering as a career to young people, particularly among under-represented groups”.

Mike Burton, Aecom director, said: “We are delighted that Roma is now part of the Aecom team, bringing her engineering expertise to our projects and her passion for the profession to our people.”
