Former Arcadis partner John Graham joins Currie & Brown

John Graham has joined construction consultancy Currie & Brown from Arcadis, where he was an equity partner and ultimately global account leader and managing director for the technology, manufacturing and industrial sector.

In the new role of group head of project management growth and as a member of Currie & Brown’s operational executive, John will lead the ongoing development and transformation of the firm’s project management service line.

John reports directly to Alan Manuel, who became group CEO in January 2022 as part of a new leadership team driving twin commitments to collaboration and sustainability throughout the global business of over 2,000 people in more than 60 countries.


John Graham’s long career at Arcadis from 1995 to 2022 was interrupted for three years from 2014, when he joined Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure as managing director of management services.

Currie & Brown’s group CEO, Alan Manuel, said: “This is a firm with a very strong internal culture of teamwork and collaboration. John’s 30 years of experience in client relationships on such significant projects as Heathrow’s Terminal 5 will help us present the benefits of that culture to our markets.

“These are markets facing an acute crisis of inflation and labour shortages. Confident project managers with a firm grip on the whole job have never been more important to viability and success. That’s our bread and butter and a big growth opportunity for us.”

John Graham added: “I’ve seen a distinctive culture of collaboration at Currie & Brown that provides a strong foundation for my brief to take client experience to another level. I’m supported in that by a refreshed and energetic senior management team.

“Expert project management that provides certainty of delivery is essential, especially at a time when clients are experiencing a rapid change in demand and market uncertainty.”
