Posted 22 May 2018 · Add Comment

Systems and engineering technology company, Frazer-Nash Consultancy, has formed a new Transport and Infrastructure business group.

Headed by newly-appointed Senior Business Executive, Phil Harris, the group brings together Frazer-Nash’s extensive transport capability in rail, roads and aviation, and its expertise in integrating multiple modes of transport, with its experience of other infrastructure areas ranging from health, to process engineering and manufacturing.

Drawing on the company’s specialist skills in civil, mechanical, electrical and information systems engineering, the group will help to develop solutions to important challenges such as transport decarbonisation, the digitisation of infrastructure, infrastructure system inter-dependency, and the optimisation of asset management to improve operational effectiveness, resilience and sustainability.
Frazer-Nash Business Director, Paul Deeran, said: “As part of our long-term strategy for growth, our new group will provide strategic advice and world-leading technical excellence, to ensure the success of our clients’ economic and social transport and infrastructure related projects. Our existing clients will benefit from our refreshed focus, whilst the new structure provides a platform for us to drive this area of the business forward.
“Having established Frazer-Nash’s operations in Australia, Phil has extensive expertise in business growth and development. I wish him every success in his new role.”
Commenting on his appointment, Phil Harris said: “Transport and infrastructure deliver a huge amount of social good, contributing to safety, security, productivity and sustainability. Our common aim across these diverse areas will be to make a difference to our customers and to society, and to seek out the interesting and challenging work on which Frazer-Nash thrives.
“While we already have a great team of experts, our transport and infrastructure business is growing strongly, and we are actively recruiting additional specialist expertise to support this.”

Phil joined Frazer-Nash in 2001. He was responsible for establishing the company’s Australian business – growing this into a multi-disciplinary operation with offices in Adelaide, Melbourne and Canberra. With strong business strategy, technical delivery, commercial acumen and all-round leadership skills, Phil has over 15 years’ experience of supporting clients in aerospace, rail, power generation and defence.
