Chartered engineer Neil Reynolds was appointed regional managing director for CH2M’s operations in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and India region in 2012. He joined CH2M in 2009 as international operations director and was responsible for the firm’s water business operations in the UK and Europe, MENA, India, Singapore and Southeast Asia, and Australia and New Zealand.
In January 2015, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) appointed a joint venture between consultants MACE and CH2M as the programme managers for the Dubai Trade Centre Jebel Ali development – the master district containing the city’s Expo 2020 site. The firms will oversee the development of the site, which will contain the temporary expo pavilion until April 2021.
In a company statement, Reynolds said: “We are so happy to help Dubai drive this project forward. We have been fortunate to win some of the UAE’s iconic projects, and this programme is right up there with them all.”
