The appointment should strengthen Capita’s focus on intelligent transport and heavy infrastructure markets.

Robertson played a lead role in Capita’s recent bid for the Crossrail Delivery Partner role.

He will now build on this experience to develop its programme management business on major international infrastructure projects.

With a background in major project delivery at the Highways Agency, Robertson helped to shift the focus of spending away from major capital projects and towards more cost-effective and sustainable intelligent transport management systems.

He has also been director of operations at the Environment Agency.
