Amey has recruited Ian Pemberton as director of leakage management and water conservation within its utilities consultancy. He joins the engineering consultancy from Atkins, where he held several senior management roles, recently working closely with Severn Trent Water.
Pemberton, a Chartered Civil Engineer, has 25 years experience in the water industry. Amey said he has"an impressive record" delivering operational leakage detection services for water utility companies including experience in water network optimisation, data acquisition and the management of field staff.
Commenting on Pemberton's appointment, consulting managing director David Spencer said: “We’re using our breadth and depth of expertise to really drive change in the water sector, examining how we can use enhanced technology, process and data to improve leakage management and using asset modelling to determine burst locations.
"Ian is key to this and will help us to drive efficiency by supporting the water industry in a journey to end-to-end delivery. “
Pemberton said: “Amey has a worldwide reputation in infrastructure asset management and I am delighted to be tasked with growing our leakage management and water conservation business. Effective leakage management has always been about the quality of field technician in my view and what I see at Amey is a real hunger to attract, train, reward and retain the very best. ”
