Mace, the global consultancy and construction company, has appointed David Haywood as business unit director for Canada and commercial director for the Americas.

Haywood has served as programme director/manager for several large capital infrastructure schemes with values ranging from $1bn to $20bn and brings with him over three decades of experience in programme management, construction management, commercial management and field operations.
