Mayhew joined the business in 2017 and previously held the positions of water sector director and group capability director, responsible for Costain’s technology, consultancy, complex delivery and asset optimisation services.
In her new role, she will be responsible for the water, energy and defence sectors as well as Costain’s consultancy proposition.
"Our team brings industry-leading insight and expertise alongside a great track record of performance for efficient and safe delivery," Mayhew said.
"I am looking forward to working collaboratively with our clients and partners to drive a different way of thinking and subsequently creating new approaches to embed technology-led solutions and deliver game-changing outcomes for our clients.
“Furthermore, inclusion and diversity in our thinking makes us more innovative and better able to deliver smarter solutions, meeting the needs of our clients. In 2019, Costain was recognised in the Times Top 50 employers for women list for the second successive year and I am proud to be representing women at the highest level of our business.”
