Joining Arcadis as the new Sales Director for Mobility is Cindy Williams, an expert with over two decades of experience in the government and consulting sectors.

Since starting her career for Gold Coast City Council, Williams has then served as Assistant Director for Airport Planning for the Department of Infrastructure, and Project Manager at RPS. She most recently served WSP in its Canberra office.

Sydney-based transport planner Nicole Vukic assumes the role of National Business Leader for Transport Planning and Advisory. She similarly has around twenty years of experience working with both the public and private sector to facilitate multi modal mobility solutions.

Vukic has been with Arcadis since 2018. In her previous role, she worked on a diverse range of transport planning and mobility infrastructure projects.

Commenting on their appointments, the trio said:

Downing: “It’s an exciting time to be in infrastructure project delivery. Investment is at an all-time high, and while this creates opportunities for the entire market, infrastructure owners and clients are looking to organisations like Arcadis to bring innovative solutions and local and international capability for project delivery.”
