BakerHicks, the multidisciplinary design and engineering company, has appointed John Lawton as Business Development Director to support the continued success and growth of the business across its key sectors.


John will specifically support the company’s business development and management teams in implementing their respective sales and marketing strategies within the Aviation, Defence, Life Sciences & Manufacturing, Nuclear, Power, Public Sector and Rail industries across the UK and the DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region.


The role reflects John’s own experience in successfully running operational and sales teams in Europe, Ireland and Asia Pacific, most recently for Jacobs, where he spent more than 20 years of his 30 year career in a number of roles, latterly as Vice President of Strategy.


Martin Lubieniecki, managing director of BakerHicks, said: “John’s expertise is closely aligned with our sector-led approach. He brings a depth of knowledge and experience that will be crucial as a client advocate, challenging our teams to deliver the best outcomes for our customers.


“He has already been supporting our Life Sciences & Manufacturing team in developing its growth strategy since the start of the year. In his new role, he will extend this to the company as a whole, working closely with our leadership team to identify further opportunities for growth and evolving the services we provide.”


John, a Chartered Electrical Engineer by profession, is a member of the Institution of Engineering Technology (IET).
