Amanda Fisher joined Amey in 2017.

“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,” stated López Soria.
Speaking on her appointment, Amanda 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.”
