Consultant shuffles top roles at business

WSP has brought in former Stantec managing director Paul Reilly to head up its planning and advisory business.

He had been at the firm since January 2020 and was in charge of its UK infrastructure and buildings business. He was previously a managing partner at Peter Brett Associates before it was bought by the Canadian engineer four years ago.

WSP said he is taking over from Ian Liddell who has been planning and advisory managing director for five years and now moves into a newly-created role of managing director for strategic advisory.
