Cundall names global HR director

Multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy Cundall has appointed Fiona Wallace (pictured) as global HR director.

She will be based in its global head office in Newcastle, and replaces Carole O’Neil, who was appointed as the new global managing partner for the business in June.

Wallace will be responsible for overseeing Cundall’s global HR team, as well as further developing its people strategy in order to support its growth globally.

She joins the practice with more than 20 years’ experience, with her most recent role being head of talent at wealth manager RBC Brewin Dolphin. She specialises in strategy, employee experience, talent, organisation design, performance and digital HR services.

Wallace said: “I am delighted to be joining Cundall as global HR director this month. After 14 great years with RBC Brewin Dolphin, it is great to move to another people-focused and value-driven organisation. I’m passionate about getting the best talent for the business, providing rewarding career paths and creating a great environment for people to flourish. I’m looking forward to getting to know my new colleagues at Cundall.”

O’Neil added: “We are thrilled to have Fiona join the business. I know from first-hand experience the challenges and rewards that someone in her role faces and am confident she will excel at every turn. Our people have always been at the heart of our business strategy, and I am looking forward to working closely with Fiona as she plays a critical role in this next phase of our development.”
