ISG Middle East has appointed Steve Ramsden to the position of managing director.

Ramsden, who became ISG Middle East’s general manager in February 2016, will replace Alan McCready, who has fulfilled the role of MD for almost eight years.

Commenting on his new appointment, Ramsden said: “I am both humbled and excited by this opportunity. I am also fully focused on taking the ISG business forward and building on Alan’s legacy of excellence, working alongside ISG’s strong team in the region.”

Ramsden will take over as the fit-out specialist’s MD later this month. He has lived and worked in the UAE since 2011, and was the regional MD for a major global fit-out firm prior to joining ISG Middle East.

In 2015, ISG Middle East achieved more than $77m (AED283m) in revenue, representing year-on-year growth of 47%. The firm’s operating profit increased by 130% to $2.26m (AED8.3m) during this period.

The company has worked on a series of high-profile fit-out projects in the UAE during recent years, including the refurbishment of Kempinski Mall of the Emirates, and numerous projects in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and Abu Dhabi Global Market Square.

“ISG has continued to grow both internationally and here in the UAE since 2009,” noted Ramsden. “My ambition is to build on this with our leadership team and to continue developing the business – delivering exceptional service and fit-out solutions to our clients.”
