AMEC names acting general counsel after incumbent’s departure

FTSE100 engineering, project management and consultancy company AMEC has installed strategic development director François-Philippe Champagne as acting general counsel following the incumbent’s departure less than a year into the role.

Eleanor Evans stood down from the role late last year. Evans moved to AMEC last March from listed manufacturer Cobham, which she joined in 2008 from Corus in the then new role of chief legal officer (19 May 2008).

While at Corus, Evans, as UK group legal director, oversaw a review of the legal department in an attempt to bring lawyers closer to the business (20 November 2006).

Evans was not available for comment, while an AMEC spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.
