As director for cities and regeneration, Michael Henderson, is set to lead a team of urban strategists to drive Ramboll’s sustainability vision.
Henderson has an extensive background in planning and design, as well as reimagining cities.
He has previously developed strategies, policies and action plans for some of the world’s most challenging cities.
He also worked on the London Olympic Legacy, Rio Olympics and Dubai Expo 2020.
‘Sustainability and people at the heart’
Following his appointment, Henderson said: “I am really excited to join Ramboll, an organisation that demonstrably puts sustainability and people at the heart of what they do.
“Early involvement in shaping places – before the infrastructure and buildings are thought about – provides greater scope for embedding sustainability principles that our communities and planet so desperately need, whilst generating a strong pipeline for Ramboll’s world-class engineers to really demonstrate their talents.”
‘Unique insight into the environmental, social and economic drivers’
Commenting on his appointment, Philippa Spence, UK managing director at Ramboll, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Michael to our business. He brings a unique insight into the environmental, social and economic drivers influencing city life.
