Wood, the global consulting and engineering company, announces the appointment of Azad Hessamodini as Executive President of its Consulting business and the latest member of the firm’s executive leadership team.

In this role, Mr Hessamodini will assume executive responsibility for Wood’s global specialist consultancy business encompassing almost 4000 professionals with industry-leading expertise in areas including decarbonisation, hydrogen, Carbon Capture & Storage, renewables advisory, asset optimisation and digital solutions.

The multi-sector business unit is focused on providing technical consulting during the planning, design, building, operation and optimisation of assets, facilities and infrastructure across a range of end markets including energy, industrial, power, mining and life sciences.

Ken Gilmartin, Chief Operating Officer at Wood, said: “Azad is a dynamic and proven leader at Wood with strong client relationships and an in-depth knowledge of our business and the future direction of the company. Under his leadership, the many talented teams in our Consulting business will continue to spearhead our strategic growth in energy security, energy transition and digital solutions.”

Hessamodini has more than 25 years’ international experience in the construction, energy, mining, consulting and private equity sectors. He joined Wood in 2011 and initially led the company’s subsea field developments, deep water engineering and asset integrity projects in Asia Pacific.

More recently, he served as President of Growth and Development for Consulting, where he was responsible for the development and implementation of growth strategies and global business planning.

He comments: “I am delighted to lead Wood’s Consulting business as we enter a new strategic cycle. Our focus will be on finding new opportunities to showcase our deep domain knowledge, breadth of expertise and cross-sector innovation.

“Over the last decade at Wood, I have been proud to work alongside many talented teams delivering global projects for our clients and remain committed to driving forward our future success, in engineering solutions for a net zero future whilst securing the energy needs of today.”

Based in Perth, Australia, Hessamodini succeeds Joe Sczurko, who now leads the Environment & Infrastructure business which Wood recently agreed to sell to WSP, for gross proceeds of approximately US$1.9billion.
