Customer focus strengthened with new geographic operational structure

AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, announces
today its new organisational structure, designed to more fully support the
future needs of its customers.

Going forward the company will be managed geographically, with Simon Naylor,
John Pearson and Hisham Mahmoud promoted to be Group Presidents of Americas,
Europe and Growth Regions respectively. All will report directly to the Chief
Executive, Samir Brikho.

Mr Brikho said: "We see incremental benefits from providing all our services
not only across our four markets of oil & gas, mining, clean energy and
environment & infrastructure but also in each of our geographies. By
continuing to work closely together, we can ensure our customers receive a
high-quality and seamless service wherever in the world they are operating. I
am confident this new structure will allow us to achieve this and so provide
access to previously untapped growth opportunities."
