Aecom has poached a director from rival Faithful + Gould to head up the firm’s London commercial team.

Alison Wring joined the firm’s Whitechapel office last month and will work on several schemes including Derwent London’s Soho Place and 80 Charlotte Street, Brookfield’s 100 Bishopsgate and British Land’s 1 Triton Square.

Wring (pictured)  worked at F+G for 12 years, where she won jobs in the south east and expanded the firm’s Cambridge presence as a regional director.

Her CV also includes commercial roles at Taylor Woodrow and Skanska’s M&E arm Rashleigh Weatherfoil.

Earlier this year, Aecom saw its head of offices in London, Alastair Kenyon, leave to become an equity partner at smaller rival Alinea, the firm set up in May 2013 by six former Davis Langdon – snapped up by Aecom in 2010 – and EC Harris partners.
