In brief: Infrastructure consultancy pitt&sherry has announced it is merging with environmental consultancy KMH Environmental, in a move pitt&sherry says will strengthen capabilities in NSW, while providing expanded services nationwide.

KMH will co-brand under the pitt&sherry name to become part of the pitt&sherry group, and all staff will continue on.

“This is an exciting phase for us, with many benefits for both parties, particularly in terms of specialist capability and geographic distribution,” pitt&sherry chief executive Dan O’Toole said.

“Each entity brings complementary disciplines to the arrangement. Most importantly, the synergies brought about by the merger will be a positive experience for our clients.”

KMH Environmental managing director Ken Holmes will join the pitt&sherry leadership team as group executive NSW.

“The merger with pitt&sherry will bring significant benefits to KMH’s team and our clients,” Mr Holmes said.

“The combined operations of KMH and pitt&sherry will allow us to provide high-quality environmental approvals and engineering design services to Australia’s major infrastructure construction sector.”
