Forrester has joined Mott MacDonald as a planner in the UAE. According to a statement from the firm, he will be charged with developing the consultancy’s future mobility transport advisory services across the Middle East, focusing on its interaction with transport policy and economic and social impacts.
Additionally, the firm says Forrester will be responsible for a range of future transport projects involving autonomous vehicle trials, electric vehicle roadmaps, policies around developing connected and autonomous vehicles, as well as advising the government on mobility as a service.
“Edward’s civil engineering background and passion for technology and sustainability gives him the ideal balance for understanding and applying existing engineering principles to exciting and emerging transport technologies. His experience will add significant skills, knowledge and expertise to our existing team so that we’re perfectly placed to support our clients, develop our staff and deliver solutions that are fit for the future,” said Andy Stevenson, Mott MacDonald’s future mobility leader in the Middle East.
Prior to joining Mott MacDonald, Forrester worked at Atkins as a project manager and engineer. During his time at that firm, he is said to have worked with several Dubai government clients on self-driving and electric vehicle projects. He also has experience across the wider Middle East region.
