Lucy Fell appointed Account Director at Amey
ITS (UK) Executive Member Amey has announced the appointment of Lucy Fell as Account Director for the Area 10 Maintenance and Response contract.
Lucy joins Amey to lead the 15-year highways contract for Highways England, which went live in April 2019. This key network serves the North West of England, connecting the cities of Manchester, Liverpool and the surrounding areas.
Prior to her new position at Amey, Lucy was the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Strategy Director for Highways England. There Lucy was responsible for embedding health and safety within the first road investment strategy, which saw over £15.2 billion invested in over 100 major schemes to enhance, renew and improve the network. She also developed and led the implementation of Highways England’s 5 Year Plan, and before this was the Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental Director for EM Highways.
Business Director at Amey, Rob Allen, said: “Our business is committed to continually improving how we work which includes keeping our people safe. Lucy has extensive knowledge and leadership skills in health and safety as well as experience building strong client and supply chain relationships; a wealth of transferable skills which will be invaluable in her new role.
“Vision 2030 is our simple philosophy to have no-one working on, or by, a live carriageway by 2030. Behind this vision is a strategy built on capitalising technological advances to improve safety, which I believe Lucy will be pivotal in implementing on Area 10. I look forward to working with Lucy and the team to keep the roads running smoothly for our customers in the North West.”
Having worked as both a senior practitioner and regulator across a wide range of industries including construction, chemical and nuclear, Lucy’s experience and contribution to the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health was recognised when she was made the youngest global fellow in 2017.
Lucy Fell added: “I am delighted to be joining Rob and the Area 10 team at an exciting time for Amey. Having spent much of my career working in health and safety, I’m passionate about ensuring our people go home, safe and well at the end of their working day, while delivering an outstanding service for our clients and communities. Bringing Vision 2030 to life is a priority and I’m looking forward to implementing new ways of working and innovation to help us realise this.”
