Amey’s chief executive Andy Milner has stepped down from his role and left the company. Milner leaves after four years as CEO and more than a decade with the company. The firm announced the news on 10 December and said that Amanda Fisher had taken over as acting CEO.
Fisher is the current managing director of Amey’s facilities management, defence and justice business and has been with the company since 2017. Previously, she held several senior operational and leadership positions across a number of sectors, including the wider FM market, business services and highways, in companies like Balfour Beatty, Alfred McAlpine and Allied Healthcare, since leaving the Armed Forces, where she was a commissioned officer.
Commenting on the move, Fidel López Soria, CEO of Amey parent company Ferrovial Services, said: “Through her extraordinary results since joining Amey, Amanda has demonstrated her undoubted ability to assume the position of chief executive. I want to wish her all the best for the new challenges she faces.
“I would like to thank Andy for his dedication and commitment throughout his career in Amey and Ferrovial, and particularly for navigating the business through some very challenging years within our sector. He has helped to create a strong platform for the future, and I wish him every success for his new professional endeavours,” said López Soria.
Speaking on her appointment, Fisher said: “I am delighted to have been offered the role to lead Amey through what is both an exciting but demanding time for our industry. Recently the business has overcome many challenges, and my focus will be on ensuring we build on this, readying ourselves for the next phase, delivering what our clients and the communities we serve need.”
