2020 CW Power 100: RICS EMEA MD secures 16th place
RICS' activities and recognition in the region have grown substantially
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyor’s (RICS) Robert Jackson is placed in sixteenth place of Construction Week’s Power 100 list for 2020.
Over the past 12 months, Jackson’s role was extended to cover Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.
RICS activities and recognition in the region have grown substantially, leading to an increase in staff numbers and responsibilities to support its growth.
Some of RICS achievements over the past year include working closely with many GCC government entities to recognise the need for introducing global best practices and professionalism to help drive project profitability via quicker delivery with fewer disputes and legal liabilities.
RICS has also helped regional governments to adopt international standards related to the built environment that help drive transparency, investor confidence, reduce disputes and help facilitate investor confidence.
Another key priority has been their focus on the ‘next generation’ by working with multiple universities to work on ways to ensure young professionals are attracted into the sector at a time, which RICS believes has a “major skills shortage”.
