Craig Davidson

NZ Managing Director of AECOM

Brief bio for Craig Davidson


As New Zealand’s Managing Director, Craig Davidson leads a team of around 600 designers, engineers, planners, and scientists across New Zealand’s five regional offices. He is a chartered professional engineer with over 20 years’ experience in infrastructure projects. In his career to date, he has overseen the successful delivery of projects in New Zealand, Australia, Asia, America and the United Arab Emirates.


Since joining AECOM in 1999, Craig has held a range of leadership roles including Regional Manager of the organisation’s Waikato and Bay of Plenty operations, NZ Transport Director and NZ’s Director for AECOM’s Buildings + Places business prior to his current role as MD.  


Craig believes great design can transform communities, business and people’s lives.  His extensive experience in project delivery and client service has left him clear about the  importance of defining what  success looks like at the outset of a project and working with stakeholders to get alignment, understanding and ultimately ‘buy in’ to the vision.


Craig is also passionate about developing the next generation of infrastructure leaders and champions AECOM’s client service and diversity initiatives.
