Founded in 2002, Equib specialises in providing risk advisory and management services to heavy civil construction and infrastructure projects and programmes. The currently 15-strong team of the advisory firm has worked on the London Underground, the development of the Blackfriars Station, the construction of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (from Balmedie to Tipperty), and several projects in the energy and energy transport space.

Hughes brings over 10 years of risk management experience, gained across a range of projects in the rail, road and nuclear power sectors, to Equib’s boardroom. “I’m looking forward to working closely with Bill, Bob and Neil to identify new opportunities for growth and continue strengthening the firm’s reputation as a leading risk management consultancy,” commented Hughes. 

Prior to joining the risk management specialist, Hughes worked with Network Rail, where she conducted cost and schedule-focused quantitative risk modelling, as well as communicating and developing risk management processes for projects and programmes ranging from £50,000 to £350 million in value. Hughes holds a degree from Glasgow Caledonian University.
