Aurecon has made two senior appointments for its Middle East and Asia businesses.
Dr Paul Lombard has been appointed to the position of managing director for the consultancy’s Middle East and Asia business, and Ermis Marques is to become regional director for the Middle East.
Dr Lombard is a registered engineer with more than 30 years’ experience in infrastructure planning, financing and economics, management consulting, and the restructuring of entities.
Marques, who also boasts 30 years of industry experience, has worked primarily within the built environment segment, with particular emphasis on leading, planning, and delivering large-scale, multi-disciplinary civil, building, industrial, and land development projects.
Commenting on his appointment as Aurecon’s MD for the Middle East and Asia, Dr Lombard said: “Together with our clients, Aurecon will seek out opportunities to harness the synergy of technology, design thinking, and engineering expertise to put the impossible to flight.
“Our teams in the Middle East and Asia are some of the most talented globally. Words such as ‘biggest’, ‘tallest’, and ‘most complex’ don’t put us off. On the contrary, they excite us.”
Marques added: “Our clients know that they can trust us to seek out ways of adding value to their business. We don’t only solve the problems they entrust us with; we seek out hidden challenges and assumptions in order to ensure our solutions address those as well.
“A good example of this approach is our work on Madinat Jumeirah Resort in Dubai, where we are currently undertaking the fourth development phase for the same client who commissioned the first phase to us 15 years ago,” he concluded.
