Rory MacDonagh, Arcadis

Young Consultant of the Year Winner 2019

Rory is a consultant in Arcadis’ Business Advisory team. Over the past two years he has played a key role in delivering transformational projects across the rail, utility, and automotive sectors.

Rory has built a unique reputation for leading workstreams which require rapidly built sustainable solutions to complex client problems. In addition, he has shown an ability to not only quickly apply his learning to new tasks and context, but to share this knowledge with others for the benefit of both Arcadis and his clients. As a result of this approach, he constantly receives exceptional feedback which transcends his grade and experience.

In the past year, Rory has played an integral role in the delivery of one of the largest digital programmes in the utility sector and has led on a number of commercial advisory projects for the UK’s largest water company. During this time, Rory has built lasting peer-to-peer client relationships with the business’ senior leaders, who have described him as ‘the most exciting new talent to pass through the organisation.’

The breadth of the experience and consulting know-how Rory has massed over this time is truly exceptional. He is regularly asked to supplement his client delivery work by contributing to key Arcadis initiatives and has been a strong contributor to Arcadis’ global innovation strategy and the City of 2030 Accelerator programme.
