Energy Saving Trust are pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Harvey as our new Senior Transport Manager.
Nick joins us with 18 years’ experience in local government and brings with him a wealth of knowledge in a wide range of departments including Transport Policy, Parks and Open Spaces and Environment. Having recently held the role of Senior Transport Planner at Lewisham Council, Nick has led on the creation, adoption and implementation of key transport strategies, with a distinct focus on sustainable and active travel.
Nick will lead and develop our work programme for the Department for Transport, as well as overseeing other project activities and the continued successful delivery of our programmes.
Commenting on his appointment, Nick said: “With my many years of experience in environment and transport policy, I have seen first-hand how well thought out programmes backed by sound policy can bring about impactful and positive changes to the issues the UK face in dealing with the climate emergency.
“Energy Saving Trust is widely recognised as one of the leading organisations tackling these concerns working with equally driven partners and clients. I’m excited to be joining a team that is enthusiastic and expert, illustrative evidence of this expertise is how during the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, we have been focusing on effective solutions to maintain our ‘business as usual’ operations, while constantly innovating to bring new ways to deliver our ambition of reaching net zero by 2050.”
Tim Anderson, Head of Transport at Energy Saving Trust, said: “We welcome Nick to the role of Senior Programme Manager to oversee the delivery of our work in England. It’s a post I myself held for 13 years and I’m confident the role is in safe hands. His wealth of experience will be valuable in further developing our offering to local authorities and beyond as we work together towards reduced transport emissions and a green recovery following the Covid-19 lockdown.”
