AECOM appoints Nina Schuler as Technical Director

Nina Schuler takes on the role to provide strategic and technical leadership for the sustainable and resilient cities (SRC) team that sits within the practice.

Schuler has spent more than 20 years in senior roles across the public and private sector, and arrives having worked for the last year with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), where she served as Head of Low Carbon Infrastructure and Cities (International Climate Finance). Her wealth of expertise includes overseeing energy transition projects and increasing ambition on climate smart urban development.

This was bolstered by spells as an Urban Poverty Specialist with the World Bank, and Senior Consultant for the Asia Foundation, as well as six years with the Department for International Development (DFID), where she was latterly a Private Sector Advisor for Inclusive Business. She will focus on urban climate adaptation as well as climate finance and broader ESG issues for AECOM’s clients around the world – which include the World Bank, and the Committee on Climate Change.

Speaking on her appointment, Schuler commented, “It’s an exciting time for me to join AECOM. With the recent launch of the sustainable legacies strategy, the CCSR team has seen a significant increase in demand from clients for technical support in developing and managing their response to climate change.”
