Aurecon has appointed Sukumar Pathmandavel to the position of global service leader for ground and underground engineering.
In his new role, Pathmandavel will lead the infrastructure consultancy’s team of geotechnical, tunnel, and pavement specialist.
He will work closely with Aurecon’s global director for excellence and expertise, Dr Kourosh Kayvani, to mobilise talent, apply relevant skills, and provide insight for clients.
Commenting on Pathmandavel’s appointment, Geoff Linke, Aurecon’s infrastructure managing director, said: “Sukumar’s knowledge and experience, gained by working on some of the most technically challenging projects around the world, will prove highly valuable as we continue to bring our clients’ ideas to life.”
Pathmandavel added: “The industry is going through a significant shift in direction. Traditionally, the ground engineering field has concentrated on refining established methods, rather than imagining what is possible.
I see Aurecon as a company that is challenging traditional thinking and leveraging digital to solve problems. I’m excited to be part of the disruption. At Aurecon, we’re not constrained by what we’ve done before, and we’re always looking for new ways [to] shape the industry,” he concluded.
