AECOM director joins Destination Chesterfield board

AECOM’s Director of Water, Ports and Power North, Michael Timmins, has been appointed to the Board of Destination Chesterfield.

In his new voluntary role, Michael brings experience of working, living and being part of a large employer in Chesterfield. As a board member he will be responsible for guiding the strategic direction of the promotion of Chesterfield as a place to live, work, visit and invest.

The global infrastructure and engineering services company has had a presence in Chesterfield for nearly 40 years and employs around 300 people at its office in the town centre. Globally, AECOM employs 87,000 people who, last year generated $20bn of revenue.

Michael, from Ashover, has being based at the company’s Chesterfield office in the town centre for more than 10 years. In his board member role, he hopes to increase the involvement of AECOM and its employees in the local community as well as raise the profile of the company as an employer.

Commenting on his appointment, Michael said: “I am delighted to represent AECOM within Destination Chesterfield. The town has long been a strategic and important location for AECOM. It offers a great central base with good transport links giving us easy access to projects across the UK. The central location of Chesterfield has also helped the company attract staff from surrounding universities and schools.”

The Destination Chesterfield campaign was established in 2010 and is funded through support from local businesses and Chesterfield Borough Council. It boasts a 12-strong board comprised of key figures from Chesterfield’s business community and the Borough Council. The board is led by Peter Swallow, Managing Director of Bolsterstone Plc.

Peter welcomed Michael to the board saying: “I am delighted to have Michael on the board. Being part of a large multi-national corporation, he brings a new perspective to the board, complementing the skills and experiences of my fellow board members.”

Michael’s appointment follows AECOM’s decision earlier this year to join the Chesterfield Champions scheme, a 180-strong network of businesses, charities, volunteer groups and educational establishments that are working together to raise the profile of the town as a place to live, work and invest.

Michael added: Being a Chesterfield Champion is an opportunity for AECOM to give something back to the town. It’s also an excellent way for our many staff who both live and work in Chesterfield to contribute to their local community.”
