Pell Frischmann Appoints New Rail Sector Director

Pell Frischmann is proud to announce the appointment of Sajjad Akbar as its new Rail Sector Director.

With over 32 years of industry experience, Sajjad has held several leadership roles within large international multidisciplinary organisations, consistently fostering their business expansion. As a chartered civil engineer, he brings extensive expertise in project management and delivery and business development across the Transportation Sector.

In his new role as Sector Director, Sajjad will lead our Rail Growth Strategy to aid Pell Frischmann in securing new projects, identifying prospective clients, and nurturing existing relationships to further fortify our foothold in the industry.

The succession of Sajjad to the leadership role of our Rail Sector will allow previous incumbent Jon McPhee to continue to support the business in a part-time role and fulfil his new teaching commitments.

Pell Frischmann’s Managing Director, Iain Bisset said:

Saj has fitted in well since joining us last November and I am delighted that he has agreed to take on the Rail Sector Director role, building upon the many years of great work by Jon. Having spent twenty years immersed in the rail industry myself, I know firsthand the great opportunities and complex challenges the market has to offer and am looking forward to seeing us further enhance our profile in this critical industry.

On his appointment, Sajjad said:

Pell Frischmann continues to inspire me with its cohort of talented people who are passionate, committed, and push the boundaries in the built environment. I am delighted to have been appointed as Rail Sector Director and aim to make a positive impact through my extensive knowledge of rail and infrastructure, to unlock many opportunities for the benefit of the wider business.

In addition to his professional achievements, most recently Sajjad was selected as a judge for the NCE Bridge Awards and is an active member of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transport and the Institution of Civil Engineers.
