Amanda Fisher becomes acting Amey CEO as Andy Milner departs
Amey has made Amanda Fisher its acting chief executive at the same time as announcing the departure of Andy Milner, who has been at the helm of the company for four years.
Troubled Amey’s Spanish parent company Ferrovial reportedly put the UK company up for sale separately to the rest of its global support services division this summer, after it recorded a £428m pre-tax loss in 2018.
Amanda Fisher joined Amey from Balfour Beatty in 2017. She has also held a number of other roles at firms including Alfred McAlpine and Allied Healthcare, since leaving the armed forces, where she was a commissioned officer.
Fidel López Soria, CEO of 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.”
Fisher added: “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.”
