Andy Oldham joins after decade at larger rival

Mace has appointed Andy Oldham as its new business unit director for defence, nuclear, energy and utilities.

He joins the firm’s consultancy arm from Atkins, where he has been a director since November 2010 specialising in nuclear.


Oldham (pictured) replaces Andy Sharples who is moving into a leadership position at Mace’s client, Sellafield.

Before Atkins, Oldham held roles at both British Nuclear Fuels and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
