Kevin Lewis officially appointed CEO of Dubai's Depa Group
Former MD of Depa Interiors was appointed acting group CEO in April following the departure of Hamish Tyrwhitt
Kevin Lewis has officially been appointed chief executive officer of Nasdaq Dubai-listed interior fit-out and manufacturing firm Depa Group, weeks after he took over in an acting capacity on 25 April.
Lewis takes over the role with immediate effect, according to a 3 July missive on Nasdaq Dubai.
With more than 18 years of experience in the UK and the Middle East, the Depa Group chief was previously managing director of Depa Interiors.
Construction Week has contacted Depa Group for additional information about Depa Interiors’ managing director, and will post an update if and when Depa responds.
Lewis took over as acting CEO after Hamish Tyrwhitt announced his departure from Depa in early-May 2019.
Tyrwhitt remains on Depa’s board as a non-executive director, according to a separate bourse missive at the time.
According to Depa Group’s 2018 financial results, released in April 2019, revenues remained flat in 2018 even as the value of its backlog grew 18% over 2017.
The firm is one of the GCC’s biggest contractors in the construction and interior design space.
Depa Interiors, a business unit of Depa Group, was named Sub-Contractor of the Year at the Construction Week Awards 2018, which were held at Dubai's five-star JW Marriott Marquis hotel in December.
