Arup to develop aviation transaction practice in the US

Justin Powell, an expert in business and financial planning related to aviation transactions, has joined Arup's San Francisco office to develop an aviation transaction practice in the Americas.

Justin Powell has joined Arup as an associate principal as a part of the Transaction Advice practice. Based in San Francisco, Mr. Powell brings over 17 years of experience as a global aviation infrastructure consultant with extensive business planning, market analysis, and project management experience.

Daniel Brodkin, principal and Arup Americas aviation practice leader, said:
"As an experienced business planning professional who has worked with airports all over the world, including public/private partnerships (P3) and airport privatizations, Justin is a valuable addition to Arup's aviation team."

Mr. Powell started his career as an operations officer in the Royal Navy and then served as the Asia operations manager for a containerized cargo line. He holds an MBA from the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. Prior to joining Arup, Mr. Powell consulted for airports as a director in the business and financial planning practice of a major international aviation consultancy where he managed the following projects:

  • Brazil: Guarulhos, Viracopos and Brasilia Airport Concessions
  • Dominican Republic: Aeropuertos Dominicanos (Aerodom) Acquisition Financing
  • Canada: Fort McMurray Airport Terminal Financing
Justin Powell, new associate principal, said:
"I have always been aware of Arup as a leading edge infrastructure provider, and the globally integrated structure of the company - integrating other disciplines such as urban planning, engineering services and sustainability with aviation transaction advice - offers aviation clients a full range of services and solutions under one roof. I am excited to be on board and looking forward to developing work throughout the Americas."
