Guy Mehula

MENA president, Parsons

Mehula is still a relative newcomer not only to the Middle East, but also to Parsons.
He joined the California-based engineering giant, which has revenues of $3bn a year and a $6bn project backlog, in 2010, having previously been chief facilities executive of the Los Angeles Unified School District, where he oversaw a $27bn school construction and renovation programme.

Mehula was appointed president of Parsons’ MENA region (which also includes northern Mediterranean Sea border countries), in April 2011, succeeding the firm’s founding regional president Jeffrey Squires.

The firm has been operating here for more than 40 years and employs more than 3,300 employees in the region. It is involved in a broad spectrum of construction activities locally, including highways, rail, airports, bridges, hospitals, universities and other infrastructure projects.

Last month, the company announced that it had opened new office space in Dubai, which it said was needed to support ongoing growth and recent contract awards.

“We are excited to continue growing our Middle East operations to meet customers’ needs,” said Mehula. “The leadership vision in the Emirates is continuing to drive growth and we are very pleased to be part of the effort to support the country in achieving its goals.”
