Global consultancy firm Arcadis has announced the appointment of Graham Reid as the new chief executive officer in the Middle East.
Reid’s term in office came into effect on February 1, and he will succeed Wael Allan who has stepped down to pursue opportunities outside Arcadis.
Reid will report to executive board member Stephan Ritter and will be responsible for leading 2,200 employees.
He has previously served as the Hyder UK managing director and a member of the executive board, where he completed three acquisitions.
Commenting on Reid’s appointment, Ritter said, “Graham is a collaborative and results-oriented leader with a strong track record. We are pleased to welcome Graham to the regional operations of the Middle East and look forward to his leadership approach in helping our clients solve their business challenges and our people in working together as the leading Design & Consultancy firm.”
Commenting on Wael’s departure at the end of January, Ritter said, “Wael has played an instrumental role in the transition to one Arcadis in the region during the company’s integration of Hyder Consulting. He is one of the most respected leaders in the Middle East construction & engineering industry and I wish him well with his next endeavors.”
