2020 CW Power 100: Parsons' Pierre Santoni placed at 24
Santoni has been instrumental in driving further growth for the business
Coming in at 24th place, Parsons’ new Middle and Africa president Pierre Santoni has been instrumental in driving further growth for the business especially within Saudi Arabia.
Having been promoted to the role as president in January 2020, Santoni told Construction Week that they have restructured their Middle East and Africa organisation to capture synergies, streamline and standardise its processes to enable them to deliver services more efficiently.
One of Parsons’ highlight projects has been its involvement with the development of the Riyadh metro, but they have also been working on other projects in the kingdom that makes them a recognisable business.
They have been involved with the Royal Commission of Jubail and Yanbu, as well as the Royal Commission of Riyadh City, which oversees many key programs including the Riyadh Metro project, and its housing clients in both Ministry of Housing and National Housing Company.
The company also prioritises its focus on implementing and improving technology solutions to deliver to its clients as part of its goal for a digital transformation.
