news: Celebrating Colin Brader's career with ITP

This week, Colin Brader retires from ITP. As its Founder and International Director, Colin has played a pivotal role over the last 26 years - not only in establishing the company, but also leading its growth from SME-start up through to being part of the 6,000-strong Royal HaskoningDHV family.

During this time, Colin has worked alongside clients and partners across the globe to deliver transport systems that place the needs of local people at the heart of decision making. Just a few of his many notable project contributions are the introduction of BRT in Lagos Nigeria, work to prepare Karachi’s public transport team for BRT in Pakistan, and public transport system reform in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Colin’s work in Lagos resulted in him and Dr Dayo Mobereola being jointly awarded the Transport Planning Society’s ‘Transport Planner of the Year’ accolade in 2009.

We will continue to collaborate with Colin on a few international development projects in the near-term future, drawing on his unparalleled knowledge and expertise in this field. Going forward, the ITP Advisory Group’s International Practice will be coordinated by Moshiuzzaman Mahmud, who is working with Netherlands-based colleagues Hans Klaren and Niels van Dijk to embed ITP’s sustainable mobility focused work alongside Royal HaskoningDHV’s global engineering and environmental business lines.

Neil Taylor, ITP Advisory Group Director said:

Colin has been an inspirational figure for many at ITP, and across the wider transport planning industry. His curiosity and adventurous spirit has led our International team to work on interesting projects all over the world – applying a philosophical approach to supporting clients, delivering sustainable and ethical outcomes, and shaping the way our organisation operates.

For many of us, Colin’s ethos has helped ensure work continues to be “A real life adventure, worth more than pieces of gold”. We wish Colin all the best for his retirement, and future adventures.
