61. Tom Bower
Managing Director WSP Middle East

Appointed Managing Director for WSP Middle East earlier this year, Tom Bower is now the head of one of the region’s most well-known and influential engineering consultancies.

Leading a team of 350 experts, he has an important part to play in driving the branch’s expansion, both geographically and in terms of sectors and public awareness.

Thus, as well as being responsible for gradually increasing the number of internal specialists and expanding the branch’s range and portfolio of projects, he has the added task of ensuring the company capitalises on the up and coming GCC opportunities, and making sure the firm is in a good position to take advantage of an upturn.

Perhaps more important is the fact that as WSP continues to boost the strength of its grasp over the Middle Eastern construction market, Bower is gaining increasingly more influence in the GCC construction sector.

Currently, he is working to navigate new projects in the direction of sustainability, health and safety and international building standards, setting higher benchmarks for all across the industry as the firm sees as a rise in the number and status of its clients.

“We tend to be invited to bid for any
stadiums that are due to be constructed,
as we have been involved in every big stadium there is.”
