Joanna Vezey

Technical Director, Europe

Jo Vezey
Appointed as Europe’s Technical Director in September 2019 – Joanna will work to transform the technical function through digitisation, disruptive technologies and a sharp focus on customer experience.

Previously, Joanna was Head of Human Capital for Europe, leading the people agenda at Laing O’Rourke, focusing on productivity, whilst maintaining a focus on talent retention and internal development to address the industry skill shortage. Joanna is a firm believer that people are central to exceptional operational delivery globally.

Having worked in the construction industry for two decades, she graduated from the University of Southampton with an honours degree in Environmental Engineering. Joanna became a Chartered Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers in 2008 and in 2018 completed a Master of Studies at the University of Cambridge in Construction Engineering, where she won the Laing O’Rourke Queens’ College Prize for her research ‘The effect of autonomy on wellbeing in a highly constrained construction environment’.

Extensive experience in delivering large infrastructure projects in both the UK and Australia, have seen her work on structures at London Bridge Station in London, and constructing a rail interchange in Glenfield, New South Wales designed to support significant population growth to the west of Sydney.
